Wind Song

February 9, 2010

A few lines to convey that strange lullaby that soothes the motorcycle rider as he or she accelerates down the road; towards their final destination


Two wheels for me when the work is done,

past intersections filled with anxious eyes.

To some unknown destination run;

– wind song for me it buys

Under stoplights, wires and signs

by stores and restaurants galore.

Track housing and an airport fine,

– wind song, please pass me more!

Glide by the bones of bored fatigue

and sleep; but not so keenly felt.

As miles beneath my feet speed on

– and wind song I am dealt.

Alas the destination view

and even time stands still,

His work has made it all brand new

– the wind song and the thrill
