Poetry Pantry #231: Ice Skating

"Ice Skating" by Kafubra
(Wikimedia)
The winter chill settles around you
         And it feels like you are numb
                 But then you feel the gliding pull
                         And sudden warmth from your thighs
                              To your feet.
                                                        Eventually the winter becomes elegant
                                    Like a dove or snowflake falling to the ground
                         When you spin around and around
                 In twisting somersault of perfection and expertise.
            Zig zags
                                     Cover the icey floor you’re upon
                                                And you begin to feel the shift and sway
                                                        Carrying on to the music in the background
                                                                      Like jingles and jangles of Christmas air
                         Escaping from the outside world for just a glimmering moment
                Just to crash to your bottom
   And stand up tall.

  1. I do think if you find a winter activity to enjoy, such as ice skating, winter is much more pleasant. I do like the shape of your poem...looks like ice skating strokes.

    1. Where do you live? The ice is already starting to form here where I live.

  4. I, too, really like the way your poem is arranged on the page. You capture the "elegance" of winter beautifully in this poem. I love that unexpected and perfect choice of word. When the world is garbed in ice and crystal, it is the perfect word to use.

  5. I felt like I was skating with you through your words....in my poem today I mention sledding as I was not coordinating enough to stay on my feet and off my bottom on skates or skis.

    1. Ah, yes I remember the time I used to go sleighing. Oh how many times I could remember the sleigh slipping right from underneath of me. I would have to chase it all the way down the hill. Such great memories. :) I hope you get a chance to check out some of my other works as well.

    1. While winter may not be my favorite season, because autumn is my favorite, but I enjoy seeing the snow covered trees as I drive by, and the colorful sunsets that come with the winter solstice.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. :)
