Saturday 30 January 2016. Thawing Frozen Pond

This morning at 7:25 AM it was 36 degrees F and mostly clear. 

Did yoga practice. Went through setting up the props. Prepared for my class. 

Then on the bike ride Passed some mysterious plants In the neighborhood.  

How did they survive The time when it was so cold?  Such a strong life force!

Missed my warm clothes but Liked the feeling of more ease  In the warmer air.  

Rode toward Japan House To see a little bit more Of the beloved garden.  

Ice was on the pond A story in its texture,  And its melting edges . 


From the sleeping land The dry plants with light behind them Rise up toward the clouds. 

Again took comfort From this visit with nature. Ready to return. 


About Velo du Jour

I am a 61 year old mom/wife, former biologist, and presently certified Iyengar yoga teacher, and I love, besides biking (and other things), nature, swimming, drawing, photography, yarn, exploring adoption themes, and putting people at ease. In April 2012, I participated in "30 Days of Biking " on Twitter, sponsored by a group of "joyful cyclists" in Minneapolis during the month of April. I loved tweeting about each day's ride so much I didn't want to stop! "Velo du Jour" is a continuation of recording and sharing my rides post-30 Days of Biking.
