Skips and Skipping

In a rush to settle back
Into a routine…
I forgot about keeping
Some while focusing on others

Pacing out steps for a challenge
And has consumed hours
The health benefit is still debatable,
Questioning is good, isn’t it?

In a rush to settle scores
I’ve subtracted while gaining…
Routines change –
And that is what life is about.

Pouncing

the new challenge is
continuance of good health
contested by ‘steps’

ten thousand a day for May
more miles are welcome too

from seven to nine
up and down hills and straight paths;
minimum achieved

Burgundy or Chardonnay?

Drink
yes, water –
wine; in moderation
of course: red or
white

Burgundy is a shade of reddish brown associated with the Burgundy wine
of the same name, which in turn is named after the Burgundy region of
France which in turn is named after the ancient Burgundians, a Germanic tribe.
The color burgundy is similar to other shades of dark red such as maroon,
cordovan, and oxblood, but differs from each of these in subtle ways.
For example, cordovan with its origin in equine leather used for shoes
has a slightly fairer, lighter brown color whilst oxblood, typically
used in description of clothing, in particular leather,has both a much
richer red and a little more blue.
The first recorded use of “burgundy” as a color name in English was in 1881.
“Burgundies”—are dry red wines made from Pinot noir grapes
and white wines made from Chardonnay grapes.

using imagination, being creative,
he’s going to try and be home before the storm,
warmth in winter, warm clothes, a good shovel,
it’s library day, health returns after a weak week,
having an old car that still runs well, having a
washing machine and having a dishwasher,…
