As we passed this field of trees on our motorcycle ride yesterday, I photographed the gentle view.

This is the third 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.

Gathering goats with horses well tended;

Fields of baby fruit trees marching in rows;

and Beavertail Cactus pregnant with fruit…

My short poetry began as tweets, limited in characters. Now I choose to keep them short and sweet with a few strong impressions from that ride. Although I am including an image from a ride in each post, it’s not necessarily from the same trip as the words.

As always I welcome your comments on this or any other part of my blog. And stay tuned for more!

Fields of Trees

15 thoughts on “From the Back of a Motorcycle #3: Fields of Trees”

  1. I don’t think we’ll ever be sans bike. Tim has been riding since he was 14 and refurbishing and rebuilding for almost as long. I think we have 8 in the garage right now (some are his sons’) and probably about that many up in Idaho. He has a great Honda motorcycle parts EBay reputation around the world. If it ever gets to the point where Tim can’t ride anymore though, I’ll probably go back to my first love and get a horse. I’m back and forth about whether I want to learn to ride my own.

  2. Better than the nickname I had – Pretzel Legs. Someone once told me I was so skinny they could twist me like a pretzel. Where were bullying laws when I was a kid? Thanks for your attention, and for the app. LOVE IT!

  3. That’s very sweet… and Red is way better than Carrot-top. (when I was little my analytical mind scorned all those silly grownups who called me that since carrot-tops are green… duh). Neither of my boys have it, but perhaps a grand-child will.

  4. Thanks! I found it. Now to try to navigate through it all. Oh the humanity! I wish I had some talent! Ahhhhh!
    Red’s adorable! 🙂 (if I may call her Red – my stepson has beautiful red hair and so do his two boys)

  5. That little avatar on my Sunday post is something made with Bitstrips (which I have on Facebook). Although I did design her (chose hairstyle and color, eye color and shape, body, clothing, lips and blush etc) it is generated through the bitstrips itself and then I ‘choose’ activities/moods/dialogue I want to do. To put her into that post I had to take screenshots of what I came up with on Facebook and import them to the post. I love her too… I’d do more with her but it’s really time consuming. wish it were an app! WAIT! I just googled it and it IS an app. I can put it on my phone and tablet… ooooooo….. fun!

  6. Um…. sorry, no. The writing is all in my head and I memorize it as we go. But the pix are on the fly. I am the passenger remember, no need to concentrate. Oh, and it’s a cruiser bike so I have a small backrest and don’t need to hang on to my hubby or anything to stay on. No worries dear, all is safe.

  7. I like the short poetry. It doesn’t hurt my head trying to figure it out. I am verse-challenge. 😉
    We used to ride our Harley everywhere. I is it.
    May I ask, do you make your own icons/characters? I love the little Redhead of you. Program? App? Just plain ol’ fabulous talent?
