Stuck Overnight

On a fine March morning I went for an early walk.

What’s that? There — at the basketball hoop.

Look at the evidence out tiny park is used. By more than basketball players. Can you picture the scene?

One or two children tossing their ball. It goes high. Perfect shot.

Well — with one slight problem.

This is what happens when your playball – just a little larger than a regulation basketball – goes astray on that last shot before you’re called in for the night.

The scene didn’t stay long in the daylight.  My attention was on other things at the moment the ball was retrieved. I’m trying to picture it – broomstick from below? Basketball from above? I hope the shooter remembers this one-in-a-thousand shot.
