Is She different



Is she different?

She isn't, really

Her form is common

The same as every heavenly body is a sphere

There are exceptions, however

The elliptical, lob sided, and dimpled

But all inhabit the one universe

A passion not different and unfamiliar

She is governed by the same laws

But she has her own rules

Seats fill and nails are bitten off at the climax of her finale

Her performance has an unassuming start

As her play matures, her movement becomes intricate

Her tempo ever elevating with precision through a blockade of formidable opposition

Through control, agility and some elastico she beats the competition

Though some halt her unfairly

Then a momentary pause and expectation

Who will guide her home?

She glides swishly over a towering wall

Through the thick air of silence of those now at the edge of their seats

Her aimed landing is greeted with a shouting leaping ovation

She rattles goals to the joy and dismay of thousands

Look! On the mountains are the feet of one bringing good news

On her mountain is a golden foot of one bringing trophies

What she is has been called beautiful

Beauty is to one viewer's eye different

Perhaps she is different- a different beauty
