Coasting On Crossbar

 
  
pedaling and steering
in circular flight
momentum and moment
instinctively right

feet leave the ground
you're balancing high
coasting on crossbar
you whizz on by

Linking up with Poets United where this weeks' prompt is bicycling.

  3. I must have been born an old lady when it came to physical danger. I didn't like carnival rides, car chases or suspenseful movies. But tree climbing? Yes.They are rooted on one end and touch God on the other ...

    1. I can't believe I used to do that. If I didn't have the photo I might think I imagined it.

  11. Oh, I remember some daring things I did on my bike. I wouldn't be brave enough to do the same now....but my past feats make me smile as I remember.
