nothing out of place



the poppy
has nothing to prove
me neither




once again
saved by second wind
pedal on




taken by surprise
single bright red bloom roadside
one nodding poppy




nothing out of place
exquisite imperfection
each weed a flower

inescapable information



no matter how it turns
the compass needle finds home
by pointing at me


I may twist and turn
roll from side to side but still
my bed has one groove

can't carry it with me





castles made of sand
precariously balanced

all things wash away



castles in the sky
wheelbarrows full of nothing

light, color, and thought

petals viewed pedaling



three tender petals
celebration of purple
when blue and red meet




come closer

says roadside beauty

have a peek





center is here now
sometimes it's way over there

simply perspective




rickety old web
still managed to catch a fly

imperfection works

riding through a rainbow of scent


ew! my nose wrinkles

the swamp is beautiful but

it's a bit smelly


pedaling through pink

lungs fill with scent of roses

a heady fragrance


just beyond the fence

swishing tails waft towards me

a whiff of horses


one last hill to climb

after the rain, fresh green breeze

cleanest scent around
