I wrote this poem for a class I was taking in fall semester. I submitted it to the literary journal the university runs (Tobeco), but it went unpublished Cry The assignment had some ground rules as far as content, but rather than bore you with them, I'll just let you bore yourself by reading it Cheesy


Thorns

I remember this trail,
As black as carbon,
Smooth and even.
Now it is gray
Washed out from the sun,
Rutted by bicycle wheels.
A slimy green something grows in the shadows.
My shoes slide on it as if on ice.
Water moving with me,
Faster than me.
Little Toby, headed for the Clarion
And on to the Allegheny.
The trail travels straight,
Formerly a railway,
The river swerves in and out
As if to periodically keep watch over travelers.  
I run close to the edge of the trail,
A habit from years spent on the roads.
Chipmunk squeaks.
I glance over to see him but he is gone.
A blackberry bush catches my arm
Its protective branches tearing at my skin.
Like the claws of a feral cat.  
I wash it in the cool waters of Little Toby.  
Sitting on a stone bench,
I check to see if anything remains.
Drops of blood again begin to form.
Scraping with a fingernail,
One last thorn I somehow missed.
Clean enough.
I rise and consider going further.
Thatís far enough, I think.
I still have to get back,
And my feet are getting sore.  
I remember this trail.

I caught the running bug, I have yet to get the runners high, what gives?  I run 6-12 miles every week.   I need to stress my body to the point where I get that high!  I remember the feeling!

Very Nice.  You know, with a little tweaking the poem itself could look like the silhouette off a shoe.

So be sure when you step.
Step with care and great tact and remember that Life's a Great Balancing Act.
Just never forget to be dexterous and deft. 
And never mix up your right foot and your left.
