    What an amazing poem capturing a moment. I ended up surprised by your stopping to talk!
    I remember the joy of the solitude of a run. You captured it beautifully.

    I feel like I was with you on that morning when time slowed down on your run. Great poem with amazing movement.

    Oh, wow! Clare, this poem is fabulous on so many levels. I felt like I was there running with you. This unspoken ritual of runners passing without speaking and yet in many ways, knowing each other. The close to this poem is brilliant. So glad you captured this moment – the poem is the perfect format for your words here.

    All those years of silent conversation…yes, of course, you’d been” talking” all along, sharing commitment, sharing dedication, sharing a bond. Love how you crafted this experience in the poem.

    Great poem! It’s interesting how you have captured a small moment in your encounter with the other runner but also wrapped your words around a much bigger message of connecting and the relationships we build in life.

    Love this poem. It’s also a metaphor for life. We are running along on our rat races, headphones on, face to the wind and only briefly acknowledging others along our path. Then every once in awhile we take a moment to stop and connect- and it makes all the difference.
    BEAUTIFUL!

    I love that you shared the stop and pause moment. I’m also in awe that you run every day! #notme!!! Your poem leaves us wanting more, leaves us curious! It’s great!
