My Bicycle

My Bicycle

Everywhere I go
it goes too
it keeps me healthy
I’m never blue.

Two rubber wheels
they take me far
there’s no pollution
unlike a car.

It feels like flying
my spirit’s free
wind in my hair
the birds chase me.

It’s good for most everyone
young or gray
practice makes perfect
today’s the day!

My bicycle
can’t be outdone
it keeps me young
while having fun.

I wrote this poem for the 200th anniversary of the bicycle. Had to share it here with you. I took the featured image in a mirror door that I pass during my rides on the Bay Trail. The second is a photograph I used an art filter on.
