Poem with an explanation: sounds

Thump,
thump,
thump, thump, thump,
swoosh.

Bounce,
bounce,
thump, thump,
swoosh.

Bounce,
bounce,
thump,
ding,
bounce,
bounce,
ding,
bounce,
bounce,
swoosh.

This poem is about basketball.  It is about the sound.  It describes a person standing alone playing basketball.

In the first stanza, the person dribbles slowly twice, dribbles three times quickly, then makes a basket.

In the second stanza, the ball bounces twice after the person made the basket.  The person gets the ball, dribbles twice, and then makes another basket.

In the third stanza, the ball bounces twice after the basket, the person dribbles once, shoots, but the ball hits the rim.  The ball falls and bounces twice.  The person gets it, shoots again, but they hit the rim again.  The ball bounces twice again after hitting the rim, the person gets it and then shoots a basket.

The idea of the poem is about the visualization and the sound of the person playing basketball.
