Haiku Commute

Freeaing hands grip bar

Sweating head and soft motions

Up right and gleeful

 

LIghts pause a rushing

Taxi! Ride pass and smile

No battle to win

 

Feel the tires squishy

Four blocks and almost to work

Before wheel goes falt

 

White bike lights flicker

All going the other way

Red ahead like me

 

Moving cars on side

Parked on the other can door me

I’ll just let them honk

 

I wait for a light

They see the great bike I have

Fools using gasoline

 

Time slows and speeds up

When I commute with my bike

A measure of mind

 

Elements of joy

Found each day I ride a bike

When wearing right clothes
