It is springtime where I live, and that means the weather is getting warmer. Each day, I find myself feeling the heat of the sun on my skin. Something about the warmer months has always made me feel more eager to exercise. My blood just feels like it’s running hotter and I want to get out and do more. That motivation has not only led me to go outside and start training with a longsword, but also to write more poetry! To that end, I wrote this series of haiku about springtime, exercising, and the life-long journey of training.
Time flows day by day Seasons changing as years pass Warmer months arrive Soft winds stir gently Spring heat teases summer fire Hotter days ahead
A flame fills my veins Passion born of blood and sweat Burning from within Blood pumping harder The sun demanding action Heat pushing me through
Sweat drips down my skin Eager to reach new levels Ever rushing forth Waiting for that day When wisdom dawns upon me Always out of reach
Grasping at nothing An intangible insight I seek without end
What is your favorite way to get some exercise? Do you enjoy the hot weather, or do you prefer the cold? What inspires you to do some writing? Feel free to share your thoughts!
