Lone Rider

Lone rider’s miles
Worldly possessions contained
Encounter journey

From daybreak to dusk
Miles and miles of solitude
Best of company

    I sold my motorcycle last summer. You reminded me of this sad fact. Thousands of miles on that baby. Best company, all that alone time in my head. Thanks for making my heart ache. Good work.
