Watching the Winter Olympics

Is it just me?  or maybe it’s because this is the first time in a few years we have gotten Channel 8, the channel that broadcasts the Olympics.  Whatever the case, I have been spending an inordinate amount of time viewing the Olympics in Peyong Chang and have been so impressed!  (I sketch on the commercials.)

CartWheels on Couch

snow-1283525_1920When I watch them on TV

in my warm house

those athletes a world away

flying through the air

turning and turning

head over heels

sliding and spinning

on boards and blades

I am awed

and amazed

me

who never learned to do a cartwheel

does them now on the couch

each time they land

with their Olympic smiles
