Runner’s rythym sewn
Beneath the green canopy
Under birds’ chorus

06.07.2018

Pacing anxiously
Feigning pain and distress
Killdeer works her plan

07.07.2018

Dashing through the ferns
Following the trail’s flow
Juicy saskatoons

07.07.2018

The ancient fern grows
Bright lily blazes mark the trail
Dirt and breath connect

09.07.2018

Blanket of fog
Finches dip through the cool air
Tranquil morning

10.07.2018

Layered grays on blue
Moment’s swell of orange and red
Quiet sunrise rain

11.07.2018

Over swollen streams
Through passing traffic’s splashes
Puddle jumper runs

12.07.2018

Foaming white clouds
Crash, splashing across the sky
Breeze cooling the skin

14.07.2018

Hot and sweaty breeze
Butterflies and finches dance
With weightless ease

15.07.2018

Lazy river
Stream of runners
Meet at the bridge

16.07.2018

Fresh breeze
The city wakes
With humming

17.07.2018

Open skies
Laps and paces
Deep breath

18.07.2018

Juicy red bursts
In a collage of green
Wild raspberries

19.07.2018

Cotton skies
Long-awaited sunrise
New day

22.07.2018

Old places
With new eyes and longer legs
Revisited

24.07.2018

Cottonwoods
The rocky front range
Giants pointing up

28.07.2018

Nora sings
Of bunnies, pups, and airplanes
Seen along the way

29.07.2018

Quiet country road
Enclosed in the leafy greens
Of summer

30.07.2018

Fresh Monday
The sun begins its progress
Full moon lingers

31.07.2018

Watercolour skies
Flock of land-locked seagulls
Catch the breeze

01.08.2018

Playful pictures
The path a winding canvas
Sidewalk chalk

02.08.2018

Lit with every hue
Before the waking eye
Endless skies

04.08.2018

New creek trail
Twists, turns, discovery

Shoes muddy

07.08.2018

Head for the hills
Follow the flowing trail
Lush abundance

08.08.2018

Silence
Cricket symphony
Deafening

11.08.2018

Pink honey sun
Quiet neighbourhoods
Fun honey run

12.08.2018

Smothering
Heat and haze
Drenched

13.08.2018

Grasshoppers
Statues on the warm path
Cooling their legs

14.08.2018

Forgotten numbers
Patch of blue sky
Burst through the clouds

15.08.2018

Rustling poplars
Webs hung from grasses
Suspending time

16.08.2018

The fresh forest
And the harvest scents
Morning glow

16.08.2018

Engines start slowly
Head into Thursday
Sluggish

17.08.2018

Crisp air
Soft blanket of fog
Birds wake to sing

18.08.2018

Sandy trails
The burnt forest
Grows again

20.08.2018

Fog in the branches
Fox lowers in the grass
Soundlessly

21.08.2018

Morning darkness
Just start running
The sun will come

22.08.2018

Wind-rustled leaves
Enter the forest
The air cools

23.08.2018

Silhouettes
Needle beaks and blurred wings
Prepare for dawn

24.08.2018

Soaring owl
Doe and her fawns
Flashes of white

24.08.2018

The thick air
Withholds its wealth
From the thirsty soil

26.08.2018

From the red moon
Run the eastward path
To the rising sun

27.08.2018

Midnight storm debris
Swept and torn by the wind
Chilling cold remains

28.08.2018

The red fox
In the wet red grass
Begins her day

29.08.2018

Enter the darkness
The silent looming gloom
The chance to rise

30.08.2018

Fading leaves
Shine the brightest
Red and yellow

31.08.2018

Slow rolling fog
Silent breath, listening
To listening

01.09.2018

Fog-covered fields
Sunrise falls on autumn trees
With crisp clarity

02.09.2018

She points out the moon
Spots the scurrying racoon
Eyes filled with light

04.09.2018

These legs
Coiled sinews, flesh, and bone
Will not be ignored

05.09.2018

The fall forest filled
With scents and silent creatures
A lively passing

06.09.2018

The day begins
Autumn sky and forest
Set aglow

07.09.2018

Run into daylight
Deep breaths slowly savoured
Each mile a gift

09.09.2018

The restless wind
Finds rest within the old field
Long overgrown

10.09.2018

Running by the stars
And the after-rain scent
Before the sun wakes

11.09.2018

Did the singing bird
Know that today was for tears?
No memo was sent

12.09.2018

Ties shoes in the dark
Slips silently out the door
To greet the morning

13.09.2018

Still, swollen waters
Reflect a charcoal sky
The storm passes

14.09.2018

Red morning sky
Red-leaved forest set aglow
Dashing red fox

16.09.2018

Towers swallowed up
In the mysterious depths
Of the foggy sky

17.09.2018

Chilly north wind
Carries invisible geese
Through the dark sky

18.09.2018

Falling leaves and
Fluttering birds mingle
In the morning light

19.09.2018

Running by feel
By the sound of the wind
The smell of the earth

20.09.2018

Before day begins
The morning clouds painted red
Anonymously

22.09.2018

Ears filled with wind
Forest leaves an autumn sea
Crashing on the shore

24.09.2018

Fresh mist in the air
Gathered into drops on leaves
Leap over puddles

25.09.2018

Ambient sunrise
Behind forboding clouds
Now the rain begins

27.09.2018

Glowing ribbon path
Startled white tails bouncing
Seen by full moon's light

29.09.2018

Morning's only sound
Yellow moonlit leaves falling
To the frosty ground

30.09.2018

The hills are alive
With the sound of footsteps and
Roaring tiger wind

01.10.2018

Day after the race
Listen to the wind through leaves
Feel the body's aches

02.10.2018

Runners lap the track
Pursuit of excellence
In the morning light

03.10.2018

Thick splattering snow
Caked on glowing leaves and limbs
Dripping from my chin

04.10.2018

Bright moonlit world
Sparkling white underneath
The twinkling stars

05.10.2018

Deer seek the margins
Move silently through darkness
Danger known by scent

06.10.2018

On this day of rest
Mind travels to the forest
By morning habit

07.10.2018

Cloudy skies filled
With wings and honking sounds
The geese are restless

08.10.2018

The golden tunnel
Washed by the autumn rain
Nuthatch says hello

08.10.2018

Step into the view
Touch the landscape with your feet
Bow as you enter

09.10.2018

The chip of a bird
And the quick flit of its wing
Ear wakes in the dark

10.10.2018

Highway rumble drowned
By a wave of poplar leaves
Tossed by the wind

11.10.2018

Fox and deer perform
Their disappearing acts
In the fresh snow

12.10.2018

Contrarian runs
Escapes the bright city lights
Watches shooting stars

13.10.2018

Snow, leaves, and juncos
Swept up in a lively dance
Under autumn's spell

13.10.2018

Tow'ring tamarack
Quiet elder of the wood
Yellow needles glow

14.10.2018

Merlin lights the sky
With mad flapping and wild cry
Snow begins to fly

15.10.2018

Shadow creatures
Float above the silent snow
Cross the ribbon path
