I wrote this poem while I was on my “Southern Tier” bicycle tour. I also kept a journal on the tour, you can read the journal by clicking on the Archive Link at the top of this page and selecting “Southern Tier 2019.”


The wind

  … blew

The temperature

  … cold

The road

  … narrow

My fingers

  … frozen

The bike

  … swerved

Again and

  … again

The shoulder

  … loomed

Blown off

  … mercilessly

The destination

  … far
