wind moves the branch
eyes open allow vision
the leaves move my mind

loping gait of past
measured cadence of present
always lone rider

door step to door step
beautiful harvest weekend
a rolling retreat

two nights three days
three hundred and sixty three
diesel kilometres

running, cycling, gardening?
not a gardener

weaving a story
embroidered rough thread and fine
our summer ending

begin beginnings
with an eye on a future
now should be enough

notes in the basement
escarpment on horizon
do not look away

my time lost waiting
old and wise enough to know
my time found waiting

burntwood river run
an unexpected vista
a shift in thinking

sinuous river
owen's mind envisions wild
seeing beyond road

and so it should be

starting to look long
forty five for forty five
looming before me

once an attractor
lightening so many runs
trepidation now

HA!
how many times this lesson!
life's beauty astounds

what we all desire
longed for on cold winter days
enveloping heat

many miles of road
where does this passion come from
i can't stop plotting

good to remember
how much i enjoyed touring
i simply forgot

milo at the door
greeting me, snorting, jumping
and i with kind words

enjoying our walks
will i tire of picking up shit
me the dog sitter

all of these unique
purposeful and required
i am versatile

intention


pardon my interrupting the haiku.

intention is found in all action. few goals are reached in a single action most are reached by a series of actions.

vision, plan, act; act, plan, vision. repeat.

i have brought a new bike into my life. for me it is the perfect vehicle for traveling this planet of wonders with its diverse geography and cultures. one planet 27 gears - seems reasonable.

now back to haiku.

folding the laundry
for those who live in this home
warm from the machine
