For fun, I decided to use the same list of writer's prompt words from my last post to create another poem. I wanted to see if I could come up with a totally different idea but still use the same words. I got the words originally from the blog, Under the Porch Light by Delores. These are the words: cards, dangerous, flip, glance, sputter, and cowardly. If you need inspiration for your writing, visit Thursday's post at Under the Porch Light. Thank you, Delores, for providing these fun prompts.
After a quick glance at the judges,
the skater stepped onto the ice.
She pushed off and began her routine,
jumping once, jumping twice.
She knew it was dangerous,
but she had to try.
She launched herself into a triple flip jump
leaping and reaching,
meeting the sky.
She nailed it cleanly without a sputter.
Head up, smile beaming.
No one could call her cowardly now.
She glided back to her seat,
the blades of her skates, sharp and gleaming.
She held her breath and watched.
Nervously she waited
as the judges made their decision.
The cards revealed all tens!
Roses rained down, cameras flashed.
She skated out in victory,
a sparkling. triumphant vision!
Wow! You nailed it too!ReplyDelete
I love it! I always enjoy watching ice skating on tv!ReplyDelete
Success...for the skater and the poet.ReplyDelete

Thank you, all for your comments. This was another fun one to write. I enjoy watching ice skating on TV, so that made it easier to write this.ReplyDelete
How you can take a few words and come up with those poems is beyond me! You have so much talent and I am so glad you are my blogging buddy that I get to visit and read your wonderful work. Thank you for sharing all your stories and poems with us. Hugs, LJReplyDelete
Bravo! Love it - and how cool that you made two entirely different poems from these words.ReplyDelete
You've done an excellent job writing this poem, Daisy. What a great idea to write a poem. Your poetry is always great.ReplyDelete
I pictured you watching a skating competition as you wrote that. Isn't it fun where the imagination leads us?ReplyDelete

Connie, I love how you can take so few words and give them so much meaning... I've never been able to make coherent stories from such words. Also, I wanted to thank you for your very kind comment as you always leave for me ♡ xoxReplyDelete
