Motorcycle and Walking ~ #007 November 2013 – Haibun
What Did I Know at Eighteen
When the first snow fell I rode carefully.
Late in the day, after school, the street
was damp with wet snow. Rounding
a corner my rear wheel flew out from
under me. I slid to the curb with one leg
under the bike.
Now I know, I thought, why I see so few
motorcycles on the road in winter.
I stood the bike up. I rode home with even
more care after that.
Snow and motorcycle is solved by walking.
