Just Another Saturday

image

Chasing the wind,
as it swirls and moans.
As ominous dark clouds
stream across the sky.
Hiding a velvet blanket of eternal blue.

Rolling on dusty trails,
that seemingly lead nowhere.
As blood slowly drips red
down ever pistoning knees.
Midst tortured lungs and raged breath.

Shredding the downhills,
over scattered rocks and roots.
As a the late evening light
plays hide and seek.
Just another Saturday mountain bike ride.

What did you do today?

Black and White

imageBlack and white
Wrong and right
Truth lies just beyond our sight

Beauty and grace
Leather and lace
Mercy takes judgements place

Light and dark
Shadows and sparks
Eternal love traces a slow arc

I sometimes just don’t get it. If we all make up our own versions of what is right or wrong (black or white) then it seems we are left with a muddied shade of gray. What are your thoughts on this?
