Here’s a poem I wrote from the back of a Harley last weekend. I added it to “Just Her Poetry” that is an upcoming release:
THE OCTOBER SUN
The October sun bleeds through the trees
Clotting up before it reaches me.
The wind is a chilling reminder that I’m alive.
And it’s the end of a day…
On a ride through the tall pines and cedars.
It’s the end of the weekend…
As we race the impeding darkness home.
Ending in a grateful moment…
Existing in the changing blood-tinted landscape,
Dripping its beauty upon my eyes in memories.
I am at peace with myself and the changes.
In a time when my body and nature
Surges through each other, flowing and ebbing.
Feeling the grip of fall in my bones
I welcome it all as we pass a house…
Decorated for the coming holiday
In spiders, tombs, pumpkins, and ghosts.
This is an October ride…on the back of a Harley.
I hope that put you in the Halloween mood like it did me!
Embrace your inner child, D.L. Finn
