Stay strong.mmmm Words we often hear from well-meaning friends and family trying their best to encourage us when life throws a curve ball.

Staying hopeful in tough times is  challenging , especially when those curve balls  make an appearance.  They can be difficult to dodge.

What do we do when those curve balls hit? Impossible as it seems ,  practice a little gratitude for the positive circumstances in our lives. Surrounding ourselves with positivity goes a long way, as does, well, seeking help to play a little curve ball tennis. 

Enjoy these free verses. 

Curve ball

Punch rock solid


Supersonic flight

Curve ball


With a look

At clear, open space

Curve ball


With a look 

At vast green lawn

Curve ball

With a partner


In the game.
