Bent Like Life – from the Movement in F minor collection

Bent like Life
Lee Waggoner – 2012

Liberating to the  s   e   n   s   e   s,
Consoling to the soul,
Freeing up the mind to ponder,
life’s contentious f-l-o-w.

Riding takes you places,
you could never hope to discover,
Tucked away in a room,
withdrawn under the cover.

Wind flowing through the hair,
as nature serenades you,
Legs press onward where –
ever life’s road leads you.

Adventure lies within the ride,
waiting to unfold,
Take the bars and pedal hard,
live outside the mold.

Mountain scenes – fields of green,
lay background to your route,
Slowing down you reach the top
and take in flowers’ sp  r  o u t.

Cooling air dries the sweat,
trickling down your back,
Faster down the hill you go,
with a vengeance – you can read the rest of this poem plus the whole collection by clicking here.

Thank you.
