The late night crossword puzzle ninety
percent solved lying on the kitchen table with
clues un answered as tomorrow’s paper
has just been delivered with answers to
yesterday’s questions, that usually go unread.

And on rare occasion, when the puzzler,
the solver reads yesterdays answers they quietly
kick them self believing they knew the answer
and stored somewhere for another day rarely
retrieved left unresolved for another late night
crossword puzzle session.

Riding a Bike

I have never been a big fan of the riding my bike but recently I like the
freedom in doing it. I love going where ever I want to go and the sound of
the wind in my ears. The way the blue sky meets the green of the fir trees.
The way the legs burn when you decide to challenge a demanding hill.
And once again the phone does not ring.

It differs from team sports where a perfect throw also demands a catch on the other end.
riding a bike is not like that at all. Its just free form . An expression of ones self.
