Two bike rides in a row inspire poetry. It's starting to feel like a pattern, like a thing. We'll see what happens this coming weekend!

Matt has this week's Poetry Friday Roundup at Radio, Rhythm & Rhyme.

  2. I love this one! The pic, too. You could write a collection of the the things a child sees on a bike ride from x to y... what fun that could be! xo

  4. Mary Lee, on an ordinary bike ride the out-of-ordinary can happen and you found just the right words to make it a special happening.

  9. So fun! And when I saw your title and the ducks, it made me think of David Shannon's DUCK ON A BIKE! But come to find out...it was Mary Lee on a bike and the ducks were a bonus!

  12. I love gentle celebrations of everyday joys. Even when the world seems to be falling apart around us, there are still quiet moments of joy to be found.

  14. Keep up those bike rides and soon it will become a habit. I don't have you remind you to keep up the poetry. You're already a maven! slap, slap, slap
