I headed to my trails and found a bike parked there. This doesn’t happen very often.
Most of the bikes that come to my trails go on my trails.
But this bike is different – in more ways than one.
I see lots of people put stickers on their cars, but I don’t usually see them on bikes.
Actually, I don’t think I’ve ever seen one on a bike on my trails before.
But this bike must be special.
It’s a poetry bike.
This bike says poetry is necessary.
Does that mean I have to write poetry?
Is it as necessary as eating, or sleeping, or going on walks on my trails?
Okay, I guess I’ll write a poem.
Bikes that write poetry
Are found to be rare
But a dog that writes poems
Can be worse than a bear
Wait a minute! What happened there?
Those words just came out. They’re not what I wanted to say.
That poetry writing took right over and started writing its own words.
Maybe I shouldn’t be writing poetry.
But I can’t stop yet. I’ve got to get that bear first.
I chased a bear
He’s no longer there
He ran over the hill
And I’m not sure to where
Take that you mean old bear.
And don’t come back either.
