You Train, You Peddle To Win 'The Tour Down Under'

Tour Down Under cycling by
underneath South Aussie skies,
anticipation of the wait
and then they ‘whoosh’ by
for heavens sake
wheels so fast
and legs just peddling
and there I was beside the road
clicking my camera
all the time
hoping for an amazing shot
but then it’s over
before I look up
and ask me not
who was in the lead
it all went by me
at a speeding speed…..

But I was out
amongst the locals,
ringing the cowbell
and wearing my hat.
I was so in the moment
for that time outside
Now I am home
and moving on with my day
feeling energized
by that athletic display.
