the here and now of trail jogging — five haiku

hiking poles in place,
he begins to jog slowly —
hills and valleys greet.

jogging beyond time,
attentive to where he is,
he is “here.”

“here” is the best place,
absorbing the temporal
in the eternal.

stopping at a lake,
he breathes very short and fast.
his heart says, “slow down.”

he inhales deeply.
om says he is on the right track.
a fish jumps slowly.
