I bicycle across the frozen lake on my way to work. It’s almost six kilometer shorter than the path around. A gift of winter and a road for free. A benefit to keep me fit, and giving back I save a bit of fossil fuel when I parked my car. It’s often such, a tit for tat, I get a gift from nature and in return I minimize my footprints. There is something to be taught from the best of deals when everybody wins, a free for all, extended hands and smiles exchanged. Maybe I will never get my lunch for free, but there is also joy in giving. I arrive at work and park my bicycle and hope to be a better man.
grey inside the grey —
rain clouds seen reflected
mirror of the ice
Today Toni wants us to write a haibun on dVerse on the theme of “The best thing in life are free”. Come join the fun.
