>’Why I Ride’ photo contest


I recently entered the image and poem below in the EcoVelo “Why I Ride” Photo Contest. The rules allow one to include some text with the image. I chose to write a poem rather than an explanation.
In the half light dawn
two wheels carry all this:
The dreams of a life,
the body and the heart,
the fire,
the flame.
Early morning sojourn
traveling light,
moving in balance,
so swiftly tilting
the corners,
the frame.
The river running slow
beneath a darkened bridge,
with sunrise streaking,
I stop to see
the water,
the game.
My path continues east,
then westward back
when day end comes,
and home calls out to me,
my soul,
my name.
