Poetry in Motion

ModCloth Dream of the Crop Cardigan and The Other Sparrows Vintage Cars Sundress
There is something romantic, almost dream like about bicycling that simply isn't found when driving cars or motorcycles.  The same dreamy romance is present in rowing a boat on a still pond that again is lost on a speed boat or jet ski.  
Perhaps it's the quiet concentration of the physical task combined with the ability to let the mind wander freely.  The faster something goes, the more concentration required to stay alive while maneuvering it.  It's also the lightness of it all.  Have you ever tried to have a serious, soulful conversation with a friend while riding bikes?  Can't be done.  Nor should it be.  
A bicycle ride is for silent reverie or airy discussions about the best picnic spot or interesting things that happened in the week.  The world is harsh and tiresome, but a bicycle gives the rider wings to briefly rise above all that.  More and more I find myself out here, perfectly content to ride around in circles and just enjoy being.
