Poetic Thursday: She’s A Pro

Welcome to another installment of Poetic Thursday, hosted by our friend, Pam and her kitties, Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats.

They provided us this interesting photo for our inspiration this week.

After some research, I believe this photo was taken at the Royal Caribbean Aqua Theater. If you’d like to read more about it (or perhaps book a cruise!), here’s the link.

This is my poem:

She’s A Pro

There are many things I’ll never do;
skydiving is one, and this makes two.

Even if I could swim, I doubt that I
could jump from a diving board this high.

She makes it look easy: she’s a pro.
Everyone’s ready, now on with the show!

~These Days Of Mine~

  1. Makes me dizzy just looking at the photo! I HATED having to dive from the high board at the pool when I was taking swim lessons as a kid……but you HAD to dive from the high board to graduate from class so I did. I was PETRIFIED – hard to imagine diving from he height this girl is!


  2. You mean to tell me you wouldn’t want to try this ?! 😉

  3. WOW!!! My first thought was – “Not Me!” Seems you have the same thought. Expressed my the fear and her bravery very well.

    First of all, they would have NEVER gotten me to go up. Great poem.
