Athletes look out at us

The athletes stand tall, pale in their colours, stare straight from their calmness towards us, eyes a challenge to one of us, to all of us, the blood-hot kick inside the cool-blooded head.

Still others stand tall, and taller still, in blue fields, on grey docks, they gaze a far distance, eyes bright with the glimpse of gold silver rainbows beyond the horizon behind us.

All are heroes, all stand tall. In their eyes there is belief. Belief in us.
