Music on the run

Start out at twilight

Legs are creaky, out of tune.

Run scales in the wind.

 twilight

Shake out the day’s blues–

Rhythm still missing the beat.

Sun takes the solo.

 048

Stride on down the road

Sky’s jazzy riffs light my way

Moon rises on stage.

Head over the bridge–

Running chops returning now.

Eight to the bar pace.

 aaaaaa

Darkening skies thrill.

Stars begin their dance; bridge sways.

I follow their lead.

 abbbbb

My feet hold the beat.

Our impromptu jam session

Cooks along for miles.

 004

This cutting contest

Turns to me to bring it home.

I sprint the coda.

 improv miles

    A song/poem I’ll have to return to. Beautiful images, too.
