Here’s a poem about loneliness. It describes a fleeting moment which truly happened, but its title is mere speculation.
Now write a poem about it,
That image you’ll never forget:
The yellow tandem gliding past,
And the rider’s steadfast grimace;
His tired eyes, the naked saddle,
The ghost turning bereft pedals
in thin air

achingly haunting … thank you for sharing this moving poem with me. tony
