A Poet Never Sleeps

One day you will be faced with the impossible. When you become afraid, become inspired.

The First Ride

Strapping on my helmet
Wearing well worn jeans
Tying sneaker’s laces

Checking over brakes
And examining the tires
Ready to take off

Soaring on the ground
Wind rushing through my hair
Cotton floating over head

Quickly turning corners
On top of smooth pavement
This is what I’ve waited for

The first ride of the year
On a bike long forgotten
Freedom of the road

Passed the local pool
The bite of chlorine in the air
Children laughing in the distance

Around the baseball diamond
Little league at play
Summer’s favorite sport

Riding until I'm sore
And all my water gone
Now I head for home

But only for the night
