  1. Tim Shupe says:

    Breeze refreshes skin
    Lungs have no space for words now
    Another mile passes

    Credit unknown but not my own…

  2. Jade Mangus says:

    Moonlight slanting
    through all this long frostbitten grove
    and nightingale song.

    Here where a thousand
    Runners swore grand conquest
    Tall grasses their monument.

    By lonely roads
    this lonely poet marches
    into autumn dusk.

    Glorious the moon
    therefore our thanks, dark clouds
    come to rest our necks.

    Lady butterfly
    perfumes wings by floating
    over the orchid.

    Spring morning marvel
    lovely nameless little hill
    on a sea of mist

    In my dark winter
    lying ill, at last I ask
    how fares my neighbor

    Old dark sleepy pool
    quick unexpected frog
    goes plop! Watersplash.

  3. Kathee Brimley says:

    Beautiful, breathtaking, reach the sky
    My legs hurt

  4. Andrea Telmo says:

    Scout Mountain calls me

    Lover of running

  9. Faith says:

    What is a runner?

    Light steps on the ground
    The morning fog floats with me

  21. Rick Pongratz says:

    Aching legs aside
    A single track revelry
    Reggae aid station

    Idaho running
    Mesmerized by it’s allure
    Punished by same

    Moonlit nights

    Perfect trail
    A run against myself

  35. Eric Maurer says:

    The strong man wanders
    Determined husband runs
    A run into the light.

    Up, down, up, down, up

    Rub some dirt on it.
