It's amazing what the scenery on a bike ride can do to inspire a poem

refracted in sullen solitude

leisurely rolling on two

wheels parallel to slowly

flowing water with

afternoon light on my

back. man made trails

co-existing with earth made

trees and hills diminish to

specks in the distance.

a bird chirp here, a mateless

bounding rabbit there, groundhogs

guarding their small

black descending homes.

carefully gliding along and letting

my mind wander, appreciating

every private mile as they

fade into the past.

mother nature accepts

my arrival into her

serene paradise, all the

while knowing she is capable

of exerting force driven

rain and wind.

quiet calm enriches every

inch on my person as I

ride into sullen solitude

refracted by permanent peace
