God Played Hockey - Poem by Nick krakana

It has occurred to me

That God likes to play hockey

It seems the natural thing to do

Upon his raindrops of frozen dew



His realm of presence spread evenly
Between the lines - And goal post two

A trip up here a slash over there

Was the ref looking sometimes I don't care


This is the fact of life we all share


So around the circle out there

A pre game prayer we all do share

Telling us - beware


Of our human nature

In this battle we all share

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I was invited back in 2010 to play hockey and did regularly with a group from the chapel I attended.
They booked the ice every Friday night at 11pm it was great because we always got more ice time it being the end of the day.

Located in Schumacher at the historic old Macintyre Arena not that any of us were that great but some very fine NHL players learned the game on that ice. Getting back to the original thought of God Played Hockey, it occurred to me when everyone gathered around the centre ice circle and the oldest guy who happened to be a judge said a prayer, however a few still played the game a little on the rough side, you know the way we thought it ought to be played, a life's reminder.

    Nice poem,
    but in the last sentence I think you meant HUMAN instead of HUMANE.
    Keep writing more.
