FEMALE OLYMPIC GYMNASTS

Running into a fixed object
Must send senses into conflict,
Yet girls hit that horse at full spree.
Watching female gymnasts thrills me.

Parallel bars seek perfect catch,
Sailing, holding forms few can match,
Then sticking the mat easily.
Watching female gymnasts thrills me. 

Girls transfix on a four inch beam
Where flips, splits, and cartwheels are seen.
Bodies rip and zip moves freely.
Watching female gymnasts thrills me. 

Floor routines spark my excitement.
They toss, fly, leap in amazement.
I become spellbound with pure glee.
Watching female gymnasts thrills me. 

Spry bodies do things mine will not
With talent hot and grace on spot.  
Gymnasts defy known gravity.
Such sights give goose bump thrills to me!

You have a keen eye for gymnastics, CayCay, and you make it sound as good and exciting as it really is. I love gymnastics, a sport which we delved into when studying PE as a special subject at college. ~ Regards // paul

I was in awe while watching the Olympics CayCay. I was partial to watching the gymnasts and the swimmers. Both were totally amazing. Your poem celebrates their greatness! : ) 7

It is as if we have an internal awe spot that certain sights make pulse and, for me, watching gymnasts does that, then in winter games, it is the ice skating. Both things I appreciate, but cannot do. All the best ... CayCay

Great poem CayCay just not my sport. Hey, I get it. I'm just more into full contact sports. I did however, enjoy the read.
