now from over here
there is still out of reach
but more familiar

fetish for time piece
like hands here again to twelve
cannot capture time

lunch hour roaming around
with chocolate for fuel

strawberries in sink
trucked in from another land
fresh snow in the yard

scattered energies
compose haiku while on hold
silly, silly me

sleepless then sleeping
need for rest throughout this day
i feel health return

cold races behind
read in order of finish
spring was theme for each

tomek

spring is here to stay
ride our weekly cycle fair
flat tires stand no chance

johnny g

the best time to ride
and wind blows strong i figure
smile grows as sun warms

darryl

gravel on the road
soleil prevails once again
where have my slicks gone

john s

the snow has melted
life is so good, full of hope
a spring in my step

ian

wind chill to sun screen
smell of road salt to dog shit
nordic cross is fin

me

like a wheel turning
spring comes around once again
now bring me a beer

tom

hungry for spring time
breathing, gasping, a cadence
eating dust and wind

vic

the weather has turned
and i am all a tizzy
why? beer tastes better

colin

renewal begins
river open, breeze is cool
breathes deep, pain is gone

jon b [jon missed the race but shared haiku and beer]

spring is beautiful
dry roads, clean streets and clear skies
potholes fuckin' suck

slippery like fish
awaiting better angler
this unformed thought

breeze on back of hand
brings gentle touch then elsewhere

subtle lessons for more speed
always with a smile

indoors i wither
if only to step outside
my spirit will soar

somehow with window
bringing outside in to me
if closed still gaze out

no fool am i. ha!
