game over

long 
late 
afternoon shadows 
picnickers packing up 
volleyball 
exhausted 
from play rests 
on the 
dirt field 
the net 
waits 
for 
another 
day 
another

  4. The volleyball is so exhausted it didn't even have enough energy left to roll over into the shade!

  5. I like the poetry. I was never very good at volleyball - I'd be exhausted at the beginning, too.

    Actually, this post does read like a poem. Well done!

  10. I love your choice of after-the-action, the satisfaction of packing up after enjoying the summer afternoon.
