Haiku Poem – 川辺を走る

chase sunset
river breeze blows
recover energy

(Ben version)
にちぼつ に かわべ を はしり げんき づく

(Michiko version)
ひ の いり に むかって はしる かせんじき

I run about twice a week for exercise. I like to run outside. In the summer, it is best to run at sunset so it is not too hot. Fortunately, there are lots of sidewalks. I don’t like waiting for stop lights but because of busy traffic there is no choice. I often run to the river because it is a good distance. You can see the harbor and a casino across the river. There is a bridge that only cars use. When I get home, I am tired but feel energized from being outside.
