Riding My Bike

My wheels don’t seem to touch the road
As I fly through the wind.
When I look down,
The road flashes by.
When I look up,
The world is slow motion again,
And I swerve a corner,
Almost floating.

    It is quite impressive that you could so beautifully describe this simple pleasure of biking at ten years old.

    My work was very silly at that age, but yours is promising.

    Like the images and room to pull in my own experiences here.

    How interesting and impressive you made this at your ten years of age. I often wonder what are the thinking of that age…

    simple words that express strong emotions, considering the age at which they were written
