Pushups in the Woods Haiku, 1/19/20

That evergreen sprig /
getting closer and farther /
closer and farther

(Notes: this little patch of earth gets a lot of my attention over seasons — a pushups station on my running trail through the woods near Lake Massapoag. How often do we really get our faces close to the earth? When you’re doing pushups, it’s about as close as you can get, and that little patch zooms in and out of view. Over a few years, I’ve seen a seedling grow then suddenly disappear. And now a branch fallen in its place. Photo: 1/4/20)
