The rowers in stride

grappling with mighty Schuylkill

heed coaches holler


as the early morning chill

relents to a rising sun


Author's Notes/Comments: 

I write a lot of haiku, senyru, tanka and fiverse while riding the Septa train to and from work.  This one was inspired by a predawn crossing of the Schuylkill River watching rowing teams practicing in the early morning.

Googled it, Pennsylvania. Saw pix of skullers - bridges. Looks like grand countryside. ~s~
