Poetic Thursday: Adventures

It’s poetry time here on These Days, as we join Pam, Teddy and Angel Sammy at Two Spoiled Cats for Poetic Thursday.

This is the photo they provided us with last week for our inspiration:

Here’s my poem:


Hot air balloon flights in the past,
a ride in a race boat: loud and fast.

Helicopter tours to see the sights,
bi-plane, seaplane and commercial flights.

Parasailing, mark that one done;
a little scary, but we had fun.

Sunset cruises, under sail,
steam train rides along the rails.

I’ve stood on a horse, laid with a foal;
horse-drawn sleigh rides, snowy and cold.

But white-water rafting’s not on my list,
that’s one adventure I’ll just have to miss.

~These Days Of Mine~
