Seasoned with a thousand suns
Soaked with the sweat of adventure

These winter days
make my mind gather up
and fold into the wild
of reckless abandon

Longing for summer
to wind by the thunder
of curving machines

Where men let me ride
on the back
of a heart attack
and race my insatiable appetite
for warmer edges

Gliding
Into the Valley of Raw Skin
Where tattoo ink
rises to the surface
Shape shifting

as the heat rising
from the road

From head to toe
the scent of leather
Throttles my ache
for the season
of changing gears

Rwood,
Each season has a time, each time has a season. And each thought has a reason. Lovely. *L*

OK...its clear that begging for mercy will do me no good..
jeepers creepers Regina...where exactly did you go when you "rested" your muse...
RESTED??? I dont think so..
more like rode hard and put away wet... rofl
I gotta get me some of what your muse is having...
somebody PLEASE..."season me" with inspiration
your gonna get tired of hearing me say (IWIHWT)..
one of us better get used to it

When your own emptiness is all thats getting through
there comes a point when youre not sure why youre still talking...
I passed that point long ago

Talk about an 'Easy Rider' image! This is great. The scent of leather is very heady.

Thank you all so very, very much for taking this ride with me and sensing that freedom scent. Life has me so tied up at this moment..ooops bad pun. But really, I have had company and Hostess and Holiday responsibilites beyond what Martha Stewart could comprehend. And to beat it all my work involves me to be there from 8:30 am to about 9:00 tonight to close out end of month, end of year. I hope you all have the most wonderful evening celebration. Hats Off and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

Love and Hugs,
Regina
