On one of our motorcycle rides through the Southern California hills, and past the Pacific surf, I composed this piece of poetry.
This is the second post in a series featuring one of my photos taken from the back of our Honda Sabre Shadow, paired with words I wrote while on a ride with my husband.
Horses grazing in pastoral paddocks,
A red hawk a reach away above us,
And seabirds grandly gliding over mist kissed surf…
~ Beheld from the back of a motorcycle, winter 2012~
My short poetry began as tweets and so I was limited in characters. Now I choose to keep them short and sweet with a few strong impressions from that ride. Although I am including one of the images from a ride in each post, it is not necessarily from the same motorcycle ride as the words.
As always I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog. And stay tuned for more!
I’m working on a badge for this series. I didn’t like either of the ones I showed last week, so went back to the drawing app. I’m pretty happy with this new one… it even features the surf from this post’s photo. Tell me what you think!
