Banana Seats, Blue Eyes and Laughter

And so you said with your eyes intent and beaming

“Just try… we’ll do it together and if we start to fall

I’ll put my feet down… just try”.

If ever there was someone who could will

something into existence it was you!

Then with sweaty, trembling hands,

pushing years of denigration out of my head,

I gripped the bars stood atop the highest pedal

and pushed off hard with my other foot.

We wobbled horribly while gaining momentum,

but to my complete incredulity we did not fall!

How perfect that I experienced my first

inklings of freedom amidst your hoots and hollers,

and encouraging smacks of camaraderie…

the day I learned to ride a bike.

    1. Thank you sweet Cindy. The series dedicated to Billy are in my Book Scarlett Saturated Gold toward the back. They’re just happy poems and I wanted to put out a little happy. 🙂
