Biketown Contest

The cyclist pushes his way through the morning light

like an Osprey inches above still water.

His powerful legs alternating: strain and relax

in harmony with breath and heart.


On the deck of a lake tying east to west

commuters in still life stare jealously.


That’s my submission for the 50-word Biketown USA contest that chose two of the towns I call home (Seattle and Lincoln) for the best biking cities in America.


***UPDATE 6/25/08***  I won!  I can get a free K2 bike at REI tomorrow at 11.  Unfortunately, I’ll be leaving for vacation and asked them if my brother could participate in my stead.
