SoCS: All that is good

Dear Trail,

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

    All that is good, indeed. That’s quite lovely, Mary. Each day brings us closer to real spring. It won’t be long.

        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. 🙂

        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.

    Your photo and thoughts are lovely, as always. I like anything that reminds me that there is joy in the world. Thanks.

    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.
