In Flanders Fields 2014 -18
RISING UP TO THAT HILL
Cyclists hiding wheel in wheel,
heading up against the Wind
fighting that sharply
curved Hill in Flanders
That rises boldly up in
the wide surrounding
open landscape, once baptised
'In Flanders Fields'

who no longer feel the pumpin' heartbeat
Of a Cyclist but embracing
A Great War soldier climbing out of
a trembling, shivering trench
Rising up from a nameless grave....
Handin' over the torch to cyclists of
A bicycle outfit with a message: cycling is the best way to respect a landscape's history:
