Introspective Ramblings: “I Miss”


Editor’s Note: Introspective Ramblings is Amherst Wire’s debut poetry column, dedicated to showcasing student’s creative work.



I Miss

Missed shots on the blacktop,

Made memories from sweat drops

Missed homework to beat moons

Made friends out of afternoons

The grass blades sat courtside

While the wind played judge

With the ball as jury

And the net as bailiff 

Treated dribbles like heart beats

And rebounds as a revival

The sun as a timer

Street lights as the buzzer
