Catch

Soiled ball falls from hand,
strikes the earth.
Bounces three quarters back
to waiting, open hand.

Quite simple, yes.  It's a law that applies to more than just a bouncing ball.  I like your description of the ball as "soiled."  One of those tiny details that specifies a metaphor so precisely that I might almost be able to decipher your personal meaning for the poem, if I knew you a little more than I do.

Thanks for the thoughts.
