Haiku My Heart
February 10, 2012
Haiku My Heart is a weekly project started by my friend Rebecca. She has guided many of us through this exercise now, and draws us together in a special fellowship grounded in Peace and Love. Join us at her blog, recuerda mi corazon.

Jeep ride jalopy
Windy sunshine fills my dreams
Drives my heart insane
The theme here is not unlike Rebecca’s Haiku My Heart offering today with the idea that she awaits the sounds of Spring in the morning darkness. My dreams are of Spring and the thought of enjoying what I love to do. I’m adding a few more activities to the mix this season as well.
To be honest, this ten year old photo from New Mexico, when I had the army Jeep and ran it up and down the mountains and hillsides on cow paths, makes me swoon with delight. I remember the day Mrs. Spadoman took the picture and where we were on Burro Mountain between Lordsburg and Silver City, and the fun we had.
We enjoyed the Jeep rides. The ones to town. The ones into the wilderness crossing the Black Range. The ones where we just went to the river and hiked around. Today, my heart is crazy with the thought of the weather being warm and the wind on my face and in my hair. More than a thought, but an actual dream, played out while sleeping and remembered well into the day I am living. Not just on the motorcycle, but sharing it with my soul mate, maybe in another Jeep.
The insurance company of the guy who hit me made our well-loved Goldie a total loss, (see the post below this one for those details). Replacement might mean another Jeep or similar vehicle that is capable of traversing the gravelly roads, as a return to New Mexico is eventually inevitable. That thought made my dreams of Summer exciting.
I’ll be on cloud nine today. If you need me, leave a message.
