Night Running

I went running tonight after dark. The first time in a week and a half - I've just been sitting around getting fat! The last time was in the middle of the day when it was HOT but tonight was fairly cool. I still panted a lot when we got back to the car so Dave would turn the AC on and blast it my way...

I get my best ideas for poetry while running. My preferred form is haiku; no doggerel for me! I polish them in between naps during the day. Some samples:

cool night running free
soft sound of paws in the dark
nails counting clicks

the geese call softly
then fly as I run closer
they don't wish to meet

scents waft on breezes
warm gifts for my nose to find
nothing is hidden
