Over the past few years I’ve written poetry and taken photographs from the back of a motorcycle.
This is the first 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.
Gliding hawk at 12 o’clock,
Slowing for two dear deer;
An orchard rooster strutting plumed tail,
And a faint scent of soon to bloom orange groves.
FireBonnet, from the back of a motorcycle winter 2014
The poetry, for lack of a better name, 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, 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, which of these do you like? Can you tell what it is?
