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.
Skating is fun
— Victoria Le (@VICtoriousLE19) January 10, 2014
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.
