The ride home.

A moving metropolis, a salad of individuals!

Crisp, efficient and green.

The regulars, with their practiced moves,

The newbies, with their deer-in-the-headlights looks,

Conductors and drivers trying their best,

To enliven the drudgery of routine.

The bicyclists in their ghetto,

Enjoying their moment of superiority!

Cities roll by, San Carlos, San Mateo, Millbrae,

Straight and gray runs the 101,

A splash of colors made by an enterprising graffitist,

How she got to that spot no one knows!

My book, my music, my thoughts,

Meditation, retrospection, introspection.

A journey without, a journey within, a journey home.

    Ya, how do people get to those spots anyway?
    One does wonder! Insightful observation

    Nice new look to the blog. And glad that the thoughtful chap is back 🙂

    Nice composition. Its so just like you to write something like ‘salad of individuals’ and ‘journey within/without’ and all that.

    I like how it is not heavy or sentimental, but yet lightly introspective. Nice style.
