air-borne

 

life force strong but a

puff will scatter fragile seed

sleep…a breath from death

 

 

fragile

image & idea from Carpe Diem

his & her harleys

 

teen-age male on 

testosterone

in search of new 

thrills-on-wheels

dreams of motorcycle;

engine roar combines

with speed’s blur…

wind-in-face freedom.

middle-age parents

experience concern,

envision fragile-ness 

of life-and-limb;

postpone possibility

until son leaves family nest…
