Lost in Thought

All alone,
seemingly abandoned in the sandlot;
drops of rain dappling its well-used leather;
it takes a moment
for the brain to register fully
what your eye is seeing,
and then

> >  b - o - o - m  < <

echoes of the slap
of ball in glove;
the crack of the bat;
the taunting, teasing calls to the batter,
whistling and hooting;
all the sounds of the boys of summer.
And a smile slowly emerges
from your heart to your lips;
and maybe your eyes get a little misty
with the sweet memories
playing ball.
