Wisconsin was…

A push off, a send forth
An extemporaneous excursion exercising
Particularly ponderous pedaling
Connected satisfaction as clipped shoes kick off
Click in with crisp snap, riding the front thrust of my cascading cadence like a wave
Crushed limestone crunching beneath rolling tires
Where trails track youth down rails retired
Chasing kingfishers catching fire in the sun
This side of paradise concluded, yet just begun.

Update:
