“I’ve been in my helmet, I can’t tell you how many times, smiling – and actually laughing out loud, enjoying what’s going on around me. You do feel it. It does enter you; it takes over your whole spirit. You just kinda want to go YES!”
~Lance Coury, as quoted and printed in The Enthusiast magazine~
Road or trail
Two wheels or three
An ode is what this needs
Fast or slow
Clutching or shifting
The smiling spirit it feeds
Past or present
Leather or bike shorts
It doesn’t matter the speed
The heart will always smile
Whether asphalt or gravel
To the horizon and beyond it leads
Although I no longer ride motorcycle, it remains an experience I will never forget. I choose to pedal a bicycle now, wear a helmet and take it a little slower.

It can be a word or words and sometimes bonus points are involved (my favorite). Linda asks us to write without editing, other than correcting spelling errors.
Just go with the flow.
Like a babbling brook or rain drops. Click HERE if this type of writing floats your boat or helps with your decision-making. Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “ode.” Find a one- or two-syllable word that rhymes with “ode,” or use the word “ode.” Have fun!
