Dunbar's Bicycle

Dunbar’s Bicycle

I’m on Dunbar’s bicycle.
It’s orange.

Following Julia
it’s been 30 years
since I pedaled a bike.

As if for a child
she cares for my safety.
I bask in this love.

The cool air on my face
I look up
at the soft white clouds.

As if painted in the mind of a child
I shout out
Julia, “Look up at the colors,
the sky,
it’s blue.”

 We laugh
out loud.

 Our inner child
freely speaks.
