Poetry Challenge Day 130 (Fri Feb 11)

My friends call me “Frenchy.”
I’ve been trying to force
my skis apart
by forcing my feet apart.
It hasn’t worked.
Now I’ve discovered it’s
not about my feet,
it’s all about my knees.
You may be wondering
what this is all about.
Let me just say,
this is earth shattering news
to me.

My Ski Mantra:
“It all starts from the feet and goes up from there.”
1. Rotate with the feet (big toe/little toe).
2. Keep the tips aligned.
3. Pressure on the outer ski first, let the inner follow.
4. Knees apart.
5. Don’t use the upper body to turn.
