    here's a poem i wrote. hope ya'll like it.


    on the road
    beside the lake
    beside the highway
    i search for the beauty
    but reality stands in my way

    a youth passes on a scoot
    puffing out blue smoke
    instinctively i give pursuit
    spinning hard i start to choke
    man against machine
    the issue's moot
    they may be faster
    but i don't pollute

    i am silent
    i am clean
    i pass through landscape barely seen

    in their boxes they sit and peer
    from a space in which they steer
    through a life that seems complete
    with air-conditioning and power seats

    into their domain
    i emerge again
    for all their grace
    they don't seem sane
    it must be the constant strain
    they scream and moan and pawl the ground
    creating a truly hideous sound

    fear pushes me to the side
    for to merely brush their hide
    would surely be a suicide

    thanks for the kind words. I thought it might also be of interest that the poem was mostly composed while i was riding my bike. The Bicycle is my Inspiration.
