Biking in Bellingham


delicate light dances
between cheery leaves
the breeze greets us
along the gravel trail
city streets full of
happy people
our sweaty foreheads
blossoms rain upon us
dandelion wishes
braid our streaming hair
this day of cosmic greens
and blues finally here
the sun’s promise revealed
in our oft-forgotten midst
thighs burn from
our breath mellow as
a fawn
the soul
