Throwback Thursday

Today’s Daily Create asked us to create a poem based off of a memory.

I decided to scroll through my personal timeline on Twitter to jog my memory of events and thoughts I had.  I stumbled across this tweet; it’s simpe but very meaningful.

When I say skating, I mean figure skating.  I use to be a competitive figure skater for ten years.  When I tweeted this tweet, I had stopped skating for a couple of years and had just gone to the rink for.  It reminds me of my last competition and I can remember it like it was just yesterday.

Nerves took over my body.

But I knew I was  ready.

 

Finally, my turn to take the ice.

The warm welcome from the crowd felt nice.

 

The music started and everything was a blur.

Spinning here, jumping there; that’s all I heard.

 

Cheering from the stands.

High-fiving from hand to hand.

 

I knew I did it.

And my face showed it.
