You are the picture of life, of breath
You lead me past spring mud and melting snow
Into summer’s green and warmth
Through autumn’s colorful splendor
I adore you
You are the picture of happiness and joy
Your path takes me on a pleasant journey
Into forests of trees and places unknown
Through bright sunlight and dancing shadows
I admire you
You are the picture of all that is good
You take me along the path of leisure and fitness
Into gentle curves and forever straight lines
Through dark tunnels and over Joey bridges
I salute you
You are the picture of meditative calm
You take my soul into a thankful state
Into a world that breathes tender bliss
Through the caress of your course underfoot
I love you
Your friend, Mary
Stream of Consciousness Saturday is the brainchild of author Linda G. Hill. Every Friday, Linda provides her followers with a blogger’s prompt. It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.
Just go with the flow.

All that is good, indeed. That’s quite lovely, Mary. Each day brings us closer to real spring. It won’t be long.
Thanks Dan. Happy Saturday and, yes, it won’t be long until the warmth reaches us.
There is no better place to be to find peace, calm, and simple joy with the world ❤
Totally agree, Joanne. Let’s hope we find all of those things many times this year!
If you are interested, I’m spending 4 days cycling a section of the TransCanada in Quebec near Mont Tremblant in June. The trail is called Le P’tit Train du Nord, and I’m planning to ride 130 km of it over the 4 days. I’ve booked a week with an outfitter who arranges all the B&Bs along the way and shuttles the luggage from one place to the next. I would love to have you along!
Oh Joanne, I would love to bike with you, but I’m still catching up with expenses from last year (cat, foot, tires, etc.) and I owe my brother a trip to D.C. in the fall. My trail riding will most likely consist of those in Wisconsin this summer. Your trip sounds like so much fun, I hope you have a safe one and enjoy. 🙂
I understand – but it was worth a shot! Someday 🙂
Absolutely, some day!
It was a sincere offer, so if you change your mind, don’t hesitate. We would have a blast 🙂
Okay, I’m going to go out and buy a lottery ticket today. :-p
If anything changes, I will definitely let you know.
Cheers to a warm day, sunshine, and the chance once again to hit the trail! Lovely poem by the way!!
Thanks Shelley! I’m anxiously awaiting the warmth for bike riding. For now, I have to be happy with walking the local trail and getting in bike shape at the gym.
I love that you wrote a love letter to the trail.
It deserves a love letter once in a while. My friend and I talked the other day about doing what brings us JOY and I would say the trails are full of that word.
Your photo and thoughts are lovely, as always. I like anything that reminds me that there is joy in the world. Thanks.
Thanks Ally. There is much joy in the world, if we only take the blinders off and look for it.
Ain’t it the truth?
Beautiful Mary. Simply beautiful. ~ C. xxx
Thanks Cobs. ☺
Ah, yes, the breath of spring. *Deeply Inhales*
We spent the day snowed-in.
Snowed in? We have no snow on the ground here. It has been a very non- snowy winter.
How unusual. We had a drier winter last year. This one’s been ‘typical’.
So nice. I like the repetition and variation of the three-word sentence that ends each stanza.
Thanks Auntie. I’m trying to use different poetry styles in my writing, so glad you liked it.
Hello Mary! I’m back from an amazing trip to the Southern Hemisphere, and making some blog visits. Hope this finds you well!
As with most, we had a big snow storm last weekend which left many downed trees in it’s wake. Today, the daffodils are standing tall, and I think we are almost into spring.
The bike(s) call! I know you can’t wait!
Today’s snow and this week’s cold has put the brakes on biking for a while. I’ll be on the trails as soon as spring decides to show up and evolve into summer.
