A Poem by 外人 (Gaijin)
"

A poem about my favourite sport, written it after playing it with my cousin after years

"
Uma raquete na mao,
uma rede ao horizonte,
nao preciso buscar mais longe,
esse è o meu paraiso, meu irmao !

Sabor de trovoada,
barulho de relampago, um shocke,
cada vez que a bola na raquete da um toque,
e la vai meu pequeno sol a busca da sua lua amada.

Quando piso na quadra o tempo para,
encrencras, preocupaçoes e problemas ficam por fora,
so entro eu e quem me encara.

O voltear da bola carrega meu humor por uma hora,
um ponto ganhado, exulto sem para',
um ponto perdido, de raiva grito.

... Esse è o tennis que nunca largarei !

TRANSLATION
Title: Tennis

A racket in my hand,
a net in the horizon,
don't need to look further,
that's my heaven, bro' !

Taste of thunder,
noise of lightning, a shock,
whenever the ball touches my racket,
and there my little sun goes looking for its beloved moon.

When I step in the tennis court time stops,
troubles, worries and problems stay outside,
only me and my challenger gets in.

The spinning of the ball carries my mood for an hour,
A winned point, I cheer without stopping,
a lost point, of anger I shout.

... That's the tennis I'll never leave !

To answer your question in the Author's Note, I enjoy Basketball. Though I like tennis never was too good at it lol. It's fun though. I like the passion in this poem, it shows your love for tennis. I like this part:
"Taste of thunder,

I love the game of tennis. I was on the High School team in my young days. Tennis is cool. A lot of movement and must use your brain too. Thank you for the outstanding poem.

brings to mind how immersing ourselves in our favorite activity is like a meditation. it brings exhilaration and happiness. it can also clear your mind from stress.
