Write a haiku based on your daily commute.

(try to keep it positive, or at least funny).

Greenfield dude’s belly

Blocks morning sun while he grabs

the curb-thrown news

Flying down the hills

Hey, they filled in that pothole!

Time for the rest now?

Rub eyes and stop clock.

Sun’s not up yet, why am I?

Pedal slow at first.

So, how does it feel?

To pass me, and then get stopped

At that red light there.

Set out while still dark

Lit up like a Christmas Tree

Watch sunrise from bridge

Leave work around 4

Avoid most of rush hour

Can’t avoid short bus.

Ominous rubbing

Squeaking, Clicking, My bike asks

For what I know not.

Crawling up the hill

Smile at biker coming down

Sick, I drive to work,

Coughing up foul lung butter.

My bike sits forlorn.

Bike on the bus rack

Snoozing soundly while I move

Busway speeds me along

1.

Frogs sploosh in the puddle

I pass as I ride the trail

Biking noiselessly

2.

Will I meet a skunk?

It’s dark as I bike along

I cannot see what’s there

3.

I look like a geek

Orange vest, blinkies, and big light

Safety trumps fashion

4.

Staircase in front of me

I haul the bike up the steps

Cars can’t hit me here

5.

Puffing, out of breath

FedEx hill will kill me yet

Wish I had third ring

This man’s sprawling bags

Prove T driver just hates bikes.

“Keep aisles clear” my foot.
