Hitting the mark

Finn at Hemsby 2013

The concentration,
the anticipation,
the choice of stone
and where to aim;
the place to stand -
water or on sand,
knee deep or dry:
the decisions climb.

When to loose,
how strong to throw -
up or down or skimming;
Is anyone watching
as the Olympian prepares.

And ……..
it’s gone.

Then the delicious applause
of water’s reply.
