The Mountain Biker

two wheels halted before a crooked course

the tunnel of trees tossed in the wind

they whispered and waved at him to embark

the track ahead snaked out of sight

leaving its route cloaked in secret

he supposes it will bend and twist

he imagines it might bump and break

he foretells the path will be littered

with upsets of many kinds

but the belief he is most certain of

about this contorted mystery

is that at the end he will have changed

so he lets the wheels unfreeze

and travel wild and free

so they can carve a trail all their own

full of twists, bends, and bumps

and all the while he pedals on

to challenge what he does not know
