    ***Interesting, Simple-Biking Related Ride Report

    Today's 38 mile ride through rolling hills, orchards and fields plowed or being plowed to lie fallow, distilled to a haiku wannabe:

    Clouds are high, sunlight wan.
    Dark earth in neat rows.
    Eyes lock with a raptor's.
    When my feet hit the floor in the morning, Satan shudders and says, "Oh, *****, she's awake!"

    Late afternoon ride, chasing
    daylight, camera
    captures scenery.

    Syllables, just five
    Then you use seven of them
    less two equals five
