Lighten My Heart, O Two Wheeled Muse

That sign is pretty clear

Lighten my heart, O two wheeled muse!
Open my mind
Release me from my enmities.

Lend me strength, at reasonable interest rates, to resist the sociopaths among us.
Grant me courage and patience to stay on course, and to avoid anger traps.
Lead me down quiet roads, along shady paths, 
with like-minded people, in harmony and not conflict,
together in one spinning purpose of human--powered forward motion.

Tolerance, patience, wisdom, quiet:
keep helping me find these, my bicycle,
and teach me to quick turn gracefully from their opposites.

Perhaps we can just ride a while, and listen to the wind.

    1. With the wind at my back and the sun behind clouds and the temperature moderated this afternoon, I sorta felt it, too.
