Running Poem R19

Running sections of
The marathon route –
After it was over –
Felt symbolically right –
My marathon days are over –
Now I just run –
Shorter distances for fun –
On these sections of
The marathon route

They all have a muse –

All aspects of my life –
Will converge like drawn lines
To a vanishing point –
Some time in the future –
Hopefully a very –
