Way too chilly for an unprepared bike rider today,
Empty trail- except for the hikers.
They must know something.
How do you keep your toes from freezing as you ride?
No matter – we’ll hike through the winter.
One last beautiful reminder of
The autumn leaves on the ground
The pine needles scenting the air
The last hints of summer warmth
The colors…oh my the colors!
The chance to breathe in the moment
As the season changes
With my best friend
Taking it all in
Connecting with Nature
A window of opportunity
On a day that’s suppose to be cloudy.
But for two hours
The crystal clear blue sky reigned.
And I rode through the woods
Wondering about change
The trees know the cycle by which they live, Mother Nature is part of them.
We know but
Don’t really get it – how to make changes
To keep happy
To keep alive
To keep joyful.
Then, I know I’m like the bike path.
I meander through
Appreciate the beauty around me
And choose to change for the better.
A summer evening bike ride
Turns and twists around the path
Sunlight captured like golden shards
To be treasured and remembered
Shining through the trees into the dark
Hiding the treasures of the trees
