Winter break has come, gone, and now I have new beginnings to begin.
A new house, a new semester, a new decade, many new thoughts on which to spend
time, energy, efforts, ideas, wishes, and dreams.
A new social life, a new physical life, a renewed life
with a wonderful animal takes steam on these new days.
The semester begins again, but now I have many more miles to travel.
Meandering on my bike down the river levee, it will bring me
closer to the sun and to the river, its large grass covered tumulus
winding its way down the bend, hopefully inspiring
fleeting moments of contemplation
that leave me free to wander and roam, take that other road,
dreams too short in the end.
