biking in the rain haikus

biking through puddles
sheets of water spray around
it's worth the wet socks

whipping my face like
dull needles that never leave
stinging for hours

when i finally
feel i'm truly dry again
i must ride once more

the poncho-clad dutch
bright orange flying like capes
are smarter than i

gray february
with months of wet days ahead
i dream for dry times


  1. I love haikus!

    And these totally capture what it's like to be biking in the rain. You've got every single thought and emotion down pat.

  2. aww thanks lauren, that means a lot :)
