Happy Hump Day, RG2E Peeps!
Welcome to The RG2E and/or Welcome Back!
We’re very excited to be bringing Poetry to The RG2E! Many of you have asked, so now we’ve got it!
Nearly twenty years of poetry writing is exhibited in the current collection of sports poems in “101 Sports Poems – The Poems.”
Baseball – Basketball – Bicycling – Bowling – Cheerleading – Coaching – Dance – Drill Team – Fishing – Football – Golf – Gymnast – Horse Riding – Hunting – Inspiration – Martial Arts – Running – Soccer – Sports Fan – Swimming – Tennis – Trainer – Volleyball – Wrestling – Yoga & more!
Many of the sports experiences expressed by these poems are the result of direct experiences by the author, Felipe Adan Lerma. Now older, Adan began writing these small poems in the early 90s, and has continued into what Adan calls, being “a young senior.”
For the casual, or initial reader, “The Poems” edition offers a straight-through reading enjoyment of all the various sports represented.
Some poetry is humorous, while others are seriously presented. After many decades of layman participatory sports, formally and informally, a wide gamut of feelings are found.
The list of sports poem topics includes, among many others, baseball, dance, horse riding, football, coaching, and volleyball.
Please read through the fully linked index for the complete list of sports topics and the titles within those topics.
A special section entitled “Singles” represents poems of which there is only one for that category. Major sports interests are included in this category, including basketball and gymnast.
Born and raised in Texas, and now a young senior living in Vermont, his wife Sheila’s home state, Adan brings a gentle infusion of yoga and fitness to bear on life long interests in writing, painting, dance, photography, and the arts in general.
Determined to learn about the ideas of Western Culture that have informed our civilization, Adan put himself through college with the help of his GI Bill benefits. More recently, he has added certifications in fitness and yoga.
His self stated mission on his website, reads, “a Beginner’s View : Integrating Yoga Fitness and the Arts.”

Wavin’ atchya, Peeps! This is a brand new genre for me too, and I’m very excited to explore it! Adan has such a lyrical quality to his voice that I have a feeling he totally rocks as a Poet!
