A Cycling Haiku

I move with the wind
Upon these steel wheels
Over asphalt night

I was able to ride this evening. Something I delight to do, though time has been challenging of late. The feeling of drifting over the road has long brought me tranquility and peace. A critical peace of my sanity while, as a young teen, I watched my mother consumed with cancer. Motion soothed my tortured soul.

Violence Bets Violence

A message from the bishop of my Synod in response to the recent horror in Las Vegas :

Violence begets violence.
Peace begets peace!
We must be about peace.
+ Bishop Kirby Unti

 

I found this a perfectly poetical statement, and a powerful part of his email introducing this letter.
