There’s always something
Aching from training –
Except when I’m in your arms

Notes to this poem…
When you physically train hard for a long period for anything, there are stretches of weeks, up to years, where there’s nothing in your body that isn’t hurting from something! It’s an almost remarkable thing to think about going years always with some pain here or there, but it’s happened to me for a lot of the second half of my life to this point when I became very physically active. Fortunately, it’s all been very minor for me, with nothing permanent. The endorphins can sometimes mask it but you know it’s there if you just focus on seeing if it were there.
Anyway, I just wrote a little fictional love haiku over the whole thought cause that paragraph above wasn’t exactly a pleasant read. Unfortunately, it’s a fictional haiku for me as there isn’t such a real subject in my life.
The F-series poems are part of a collection composed on my ferry rides across Halifax Harbour when the buses aren’t crossing the MacDonald bridge due to the Big Lift bridge redecking. This should keep happening until at least December 2016.
