From the Back of a Motorcycle #1- Hawk at 12 O’clock

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.

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?

    Thanks Mary! I have a few more ideas I’ll get together for next week, it’s still not right (either one). I LOVE being the passenger… I get to look around and really see everything without having to concentrate.

    Thanks for the feedback Ian, it’s my hubby’s favorite too. I think I’m going to continue working on it tho, I’m not quite happy with either. Thank you so much for commenting!
