15. New Sports

Over the years

I moved on

 to other sports

to solitary sports

that suited me; that fit me

that asked for

a different kind of confidence.

I discovered cycling

and kayaking

and cross-country skiing

and hiking

I still do these things.

I still love these things.

-- creaky knees and all.


On special days,

on long, hard physical days

I still am  -

a mess of pure adrenalin

a mess of pure exhaustion

a mess of pure joy.
