The ball, a honeyed sun, arcs high,

A silent prayer against the sky.

Muscles tense, a moment held,

Then through the net, the story's spelled.

A swish, a sigh, a joyous shout,

A weightless feeling, pure without

A single doubt, a single fear,

Just teammates close, and victory near.

Smiles like sunshine, faces bright,

A burst of light that cuts the night.

High fives erupt, a joyful sound,

One point, one win, on hallowed ground.

The echo lingers, sweet and warm,

A shared embrace, a passing storm

Of doubt now banished, hearts alight,

The joy of victory, pure delight.
