Just Rain…

Head down

Hands on handlebars

Feet push pedals

Legs burn

Wheels spin

Breath after breath

Landscape blurs


Looking forward

Gray haze

Rain threatens

Legs on fire

…Push on…

First drops hit

Cold to the skin

Drops follow drops


…Press on…

Wind in face

Stinging water

In the cold

Deep breath out

Through open mouth

Head down

Water drips

Down my face

Keep going

…In spite…

After all

It is

just rain

I'm older than I think I am and younger than I feel. I'm stuck in the 80's but relevant to today (oh I hope that last part is true). I think I am more of an enigma than I really am, but somehow still confound those who try to figure me out (or they just look at me weird, so I infer that). And I really hate my first name. Husband, father, Navy Vet, UCF graduate, cat owner (translate.. slave), wannabe writer, and all around big kid who is stuck in an adult world. Overall, I just... um.. something to something, blah blah blah. And that's all I got to say about that.
