Triku - Triathlon Poetry

Triku-The traditional Japanese poetry form with a triathlon focus.

Last mile was fast
Motivated by nature
Gator on my run

On the final mile of my early morning run, I saw some wildlife up ahead on the trail. I thought it was a possum waddling down the center of the path, but it turned out to be a 4.5 foot alligator out for his morning walk. He was in the middle of the trail as I approached and I skirted by along the right side of the trail and he didn't make any sudden moves. I picked up the pace and didn't look back and clocked a quick final mile of my morning run.
