Amazing Grace

Maria Tutaia's grace
is simply unstoppable.

An athlete
on the netball court,
distinguished by precision,
that sharp shooter's

I note her calm.
Even when
she rarely misses,
luck throws
her a rebound
and she makes good
the second chance.

And, if she had to
hit the bulls-eye
from 100 yards
my money'd
be on her.
