Skating Poem S024

Not “no pain, no gain” –
But, certainly, little pain –
Potential big gain!

Notes to this poem…

How I would describe a certain type of situation that is opportunistic with a little sacrifice, but not to the extent of “no pain, no gain”. The latter sounds as if some decent amount of “pain” of some sort (not just physical), seems to be required.

The S-series poems were composed while I was out skating on the Halifax Emera Skating Oval, to squeeze in writing time in a life that is always getting busier.
