A Clean Message

Endless patience

Practices the archer,

Alongside the mechanical skills –

So necessary –

But mostly the waiting.

Sometimes it’s the only game

And the only way to play it.

The eye and brain alert

For opportunity –

For at times such chances

Pass unrecognised

Until beyond range.

Even temper practices the archer,

Readiness in less than the

Beat of a hind’s heart.

Target and wind

Will combine; then harden the

Breathing, still the nerve.

The shot is a clean message:

Silent pride and diligence;

I am here!
