Echos of Leather Meant to Shock

Echoes of leather, dribbling slow
On polished wood floors all a-glow,
And the breathing of players steady
Running, blocking, always ready
Fast hands--quick in the paint--move light as a feather
As fans listen close to these echoes of leather

Meant for shock, steps echo tonight
Over, under, fake left, fake right
Watch fans get loud, stand up and cheer
When stars can grip this orange sphere;
Twenty-four seconds slowly ticking on the clock
Swish! The sound of a beautiful shot, meant for shock

Author Image Author Image I love reading the Word of God. With prayer God's Word reveals so much: from comfort to temperance, from perspective to affirmation. Digging into the depths of the Word, cross-referencing history, language and time differences, is a passion of mine. In March of 2015 I decided to go back through the Bible doing an in depth study on each section I read. Eventually I decided to share my journal of notes as I partake in this journey. I hope you are blessed by God and inspired to pursue a deeper relationship with Him. I love reading and learning about God, nature, and science. I am interested in how it all connects. The Creator's fingerprints are all over his creation. We can learn so much about Him and how we came to be by exploring the world around us. Join me as I explore the world and draw closer to the One who created it all.
