Opening Day 2018

Today you’ll dig in the closet for your glove and snap a ball into it while sipping your morning coffee.

Today you’ll still be able to turn the double play.

Today sunflower seeds strangely find their way into your back pocket.

Today a hot dog and peanuts for lunch will sound about right.

Today you’ll be the wily vet with just a little something left.

Today you’ll look for the AM dial on your radio.

Today mom’s watching.

Today dad’s in the backyard with his glove.

Today will be hopeful.

Today it’ll still be a kids’ game.

Today you’ll be a kid.

Today is Opening Day!

Greg Shea, 2000
