Poetry Day – Limerick for Tillman the Skateboarding Dog!!

I’m going to admit something that’s a little crazy.

Everytime I watch Tillman the Skateboarding Dog, I cry tears of joy!

It started when I was pregnant.  My husband showed me his video on Youtube, and it touched me deeply.  There’s something about his carefree smile and his doggy tongue wagging in the wind while he rides his skateboard!  Maybe I’ve just always had a soft spot for bulldogs.  But for whatever reason, he inspires me! 

Even now, months after I’ve given birth, his video has the ability to put a huge smile on my face and the dream of limitless possibilities in my heart.

It’s a little nuts.  But, I’ll own it.  So here, for Tillman, is a limerick:

Oh Tillman, the bulldog who skates,
Your joy is contagious and great,
From boss skating skills
To surfing waves chill,
You inspire me to take hold of my fate!
