Personal Poetry Challenge: Ski

So I challenged myself to go to Oneword.com and write a short poem in 60 seconds using whatever word popped up. I was stunned for a moment when ‘ski’ was my word. But I think it turned out ok in the end. Here’s my ‘ski’ poem. Let me know what you think.

 

To ski, to fly
Down powdered lanes
Of glistening white

To fly, to race
Letting your weight
And instinct lead

To race, to see
Obstacles racing near
A blur as you pass

To see, to feel
The freedom of your flight
The oneness with the mountain

To feel, to love
The solidarity
One light, one night.
