Be Still

Parking at a park
By the river
By a bridge
Sitting on a bench
Zero minutes...

Bridge with car crossing seldomly
River current is moving calmly
Trees silent
Houses with yard a short distance
Harley panting and cooling off behind me
Slight freshening breeze
Thirty minutes...

Ducks swimming idly under bridge
Starks in the tree minding
Swimming spiders creating ripples
Occasional splashes on surface
River fish grabbing their meals
Sixty minutes...

Life is everywhere
But more life exists when you sit down
And be still!

During a solo Harley rideabout around Lake Michigan
