Treasure Island

Stepping To Rhythm


Walking incessantly on a treadmill, looking into mirrored walls on every side.
Stepping to a rhythm beat out by a conveyor belt for twenty minutes, burning calories to lose weight.

Stepping steadily up and down, keeping track of steps - off to the water fountain for a drink.
Exercising legs and thighs and stomach in a row - hoping to find an image in the mirror that I can like.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
