Motorcycle Haiku

The air smelled like pine
as we wove around corners
on my husband’s bike.

Splashes of color
on the September hillsides.
Sun warm on my face.

Such a bonus day
this summer-like afternoon.
My husband and I

spooned together.
I wrapped my arms around him
and smelled his clean shirt.

The best kind of love. And I love that clean-guy scent.

there is something exhilaratingly about being"spooned" with someone on a powerful piece of machinery... and very little else... isn't there?????
