Haiku – The “Harvester of Sorrow” Run

Black grey skies above

Hills pushing me to extreme

Hot muggy morning

I was listening to … And Justice for All by Metallica as I ran today.  It got me to thinking about how I would rank their work.  To all of you metal fans or Metallica fans that follow me – here is my list of how I would rank their albums (albums – ha – I am so old).  Feel free to scream at me if you don’t agree.  

1. . . . And Justice for All 2. Kill ’em All 3. Master of Puppets 4. The Black Album 5. Ride the Lightning 6. Death Magnetic 7. St. Anger 8. ReLoad 9. Load 

So, that’s it.  In my mind this is the way they fall for me, personally.  If you feel any different please let me know.  

Now, I want to dedicate this song to all the runners out there – yeah, totally not about running or anything related to it, but sometimes I feel like running is a harvester of sorrow when the legs, environment, and things like that conspire against me.
