3. A Juggling Poem

We've had requests for our previously published Juggling Poem, so here it is again.

Learning To Juggle

The balls are rising
and now they fall,
And here I'm stuck
in the midst of them all.

The harder I try
to think what to do -
"Where the heck is that ball
that I just threw!"

The balls all seem
to have a mind of their own.
I try to control them
but they find their own home.

Then suddenly it happens,
the balls seem to know -
For when I toss them,
into my hand they go.

The rising and falling,
a catch and a throw -
The balls teach my body
what it must know.

It's holding on,
and it's letting go.
I'm catching on
with each new throw.

The panic is gone,
the patterns are clearer.
The rhythms I hear now
with more than my ear.

I'm no longer controlling,
I feel it inside.
When I said I couldn't juggle,
to myself I had lied.

It feels so good,
my body's alive.
Ok, it's time now,
I move on to Five!

- Jim Nelson

Is anyone interested in a jugglenow Subscribers Only juggling equipment AUCTION? An arranged date would let you know when the auction is.
