A Sunny Day

Post by Solina Dave »

Every once in a while, for some unknown reason, I get the urge to try and explain how I felt about something that happened to me. So I wrote this simple poem. I hope you like it.
Just to explain a little bit; I'm 72 years old, divorced, live alone, very few friends, two great grown up kids, but no other family to speak of, except for my captive audience. And that's you lucky guys! And I invariably ride solo almost every time I ride. I'm alone most of the time, but very rarely lonely.
I went for a ride last season, on a beautiful sunny day, and rested for a bit under a tree and had a nap. Maybe some of you can relate. Motorcycling is the best!
Cheers................Dave :D

That sounds like a wonderful day. I too will be riding solo for the majority of my rides, and I can picture exactly what you are describing, bike on its side stand, casting a shadow off to the side. Head resting on a balled up jacket up against the big old tree having a rest. Sounds great...

Very nice poem!
It reminded me immediately of a day long ago.
I had headed very early on a Sunday morning for a ride out through
Bucks County Pennsylvania. By about 9 am, the sun was coming
up warm and beautiful.
Suddenly I had an attack of the sleepies. There was a nice quiet
city park there on the side of Route 32 along side of the Delaware
river. There was no one at all in the park. You couldn't have asked
for a more peaceful scene. So I pulled the bike onto the
grass and sort of rolled off the bike onto the ground and...zzzz....out
like a light. Woke up about 2 hours later to find myself surrounded
by lots of people playing ball, chasing frisbees, chasing kids, etc.
I often wonder what they thought of that guy sound asleep on the
ground next to the motorcycle in the middle of their park. LOL!!!!
