I Saddle the Cycle for All of Mankind

I saddle the cycle; not for me
But for all of mankind

The peace of monks floods in
As I float in a 1700 cc meditation

Each stroke of the V thrusts me
Ever closer to ultimate understanding

I saddle the cycle; not for me
But for all of mankind

I think this is very interesting...mixing the wisdom of the monks (which is something that feels very far out there) with something as mundane as riding a bike.

Riding....mundane? It is my Zen time, and I love every minute of the winding roads!
