Every Silver Cloud Has a Bicycle Lining





Every silver cloud has a bicycle lining.

Every shining day has two wheels in its heart.

Every golden afternoon has a ding ding bell ringing with wild abandon.

Every electric night has a bicycle with a woman speaking a language other than your own.

Each chill dawn has a bicycle leaning against a tree.

Each easy morning has a bicycle locked up at the local coffee shop. Pondering an idea.

In each fleeting moment, a spin of the pedals.

In every passing face, the promise of balanced self-propulsion.

In each revolution of the wheel, distance unrolling from your own feet.

  2. Good pic, JRA! That cloud is OBVIOUSLY a lowracer recumbent!

    1. That is one shiny, fast looking recumbent, light as a cloud, BluesCat.

    1. Thanks, bicyclesinnewcastle. While I firmly hold that all clouds are perfect, this one struck me as more photogenic than others, from where I was riding at that moment.

    2. Agreed. Skies always seem more spectacular from the seat of the bike.

  4. Irreverently, he inquires if the bicycle locked at the local coffee shop has a yellow card on it?

    1. No Steve, it seems that the bicycle was left there for just-a-minute, then the cloud must have floated by, engulfed it, and floated on. There is no bicycle.
