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!
