Bi-cycle

 1886 Coventry Rotary Quadracycle for two
1886 Coventry Rotary Quadracycle for two ~ en.wikipedia.org


No matter how
many times we fall
twirling a millage (mph)
moving in a blurry maze
a weak of
trying to catch/reach
the target or
run from counterfeit
obstacles
groan in absurd
to absorb
déjà vu of the lesson
in. the. circle.
the truth within.

It’s worth
to get up
starting over,
and try to roll/cross
on the other surface,
raise over prejudice
meet other folks,
faces,
lend helping hand.

Playing solo? – for while,
the world rests
on the shoulders of
more than one.

  9. Bi-cycle, not uni or solo or tri---yes, get up, get on try another, move forward with gusto and curiosity. You work this in a unique and interesting way, not leaving us free to make do and groan. Weak, I guess, is what we get for playing it safe.

  10. What a cool photo. I have one of my mom, aged three on a similarly old fashioned one that looks way too high and tippy for a small child to be on. I like the message about getting back up and, at the end, that the world rests on the shoulders of more than one. Thank heavens!
