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
