bridges in the rain

special connections

bridges in the rain

riding motorcycles creates those special connections

standing under bridges

scanning the rain clouds for breaks

opportunities to get riding again

laybys, scrapes in the verge to stop

check the load, tires, fix the unfixed

stopping, smelling the flowers, dog shit

trying to ignore the acres of used paper tissue

watching the cars go by as you wait for a friend

bringing tools, spares or meeting up to go on

seeing the deer in the field the speeding cars miss

the badgers playing catch-me-if-you-can in the ditch

shelter standing under the eaves in service stations

listening to the road stories from others traveling light

understanding you may never meet these brothers

ever again in this life

but knowing you have special connections

bridges on the road
