An object. Indeed!

bike

She’s a necessary one!
Someone I need, couldn’t cope the daily life without!
Now, in this late, late evening, she’s standing outside all alone.
Getting covered with the white, fluffy snow.

Tomorrow, the weather forecast tells,
it’s gonna be warmer in this southern part of Sweden.
It’s gonna be a couple of degrees above Zero (C) during daytime,
and at nights it’s gonna freeze.
It’s gonna be like hell! Walking on ice! Biking on ice!

I want the ice and snow to vanish,
as soon as possible.
And until then I’ll avoid going anywhere.
If I can.

By the way! Don’t tell her, please! She might be hurt!
But I need another one.
SOOOOOOON!
Another bike! A new one!
She, the old lady, sounds like she is going to fall apart any day!

Or maybe she is just as grumpy, because of the snow,
as I am.
No! That isn’t true.
She was a bad buy,
straight from the beginning.
This second hand OBJECT!

  1. What a great entry … this could be my bicycle. Standing out there in the snow … too. *smile
    Love how you have captured the snow flakes. I think it’s magical.

        • Oh I bike all year around! But off course there are days (and weeks) in the winter when you have to be extra careful. Then I walk. With the bike. It’s good to hold on to. :lol:
          And it carries my things!
          Thanks again!

          • Over here in Sweden .. bikes are big thing the whole year – and in Denmark even more. Live in a small town now so I dare to cycle – but I would never dare to do it in a big city even if our cities are so well “set-up” for safe cycling.

          • Yes that’s true! And I don’t think I would like to bike in Gothenburg, for example.
            The problem here, is that there are so bad snow clearance on the streets and paths. Especially downtown. Odd!

          • Gothenburg … is built for bicycling those days .. they have more space than anything else. Also I think that in the city there is no snow, because most of the streets are heated …

          • I didn’t know that. But I know it’s quite difficult to drive through when you’re not used to how the exits and entrances goes.
            You really have to be observant when you f.ex. comes from south and are headed towards Oslo – or anyplace else where you have to pass through Gbg
            “Don’t stick to the right lane if your going straight forward – like in most other cities!”

          • Gothenburg city center – you’re not able to drive through – because the street system is made like that – they have revived the city center into four parts and you can drive from one to the other … so you have to drive around to come to the other parts, In every quart piece of the city is there a parking house … very clever really, because it has made the city center much safer for pedestrians and public transport runs really smooth.

          • I don’t know what you’re talking about. I don’t know gbg that well.
            But! When I have driven through gbg on the E6 I never drive on streets, but the E6 doesn’t really go around the whole city nowadays. Does it? It goes through the city, through the Tingstadtunnel and then further north. Or south. Depending on where you are going.
            Why should anyone trawelling the E6 which goes between Malmoe and Oslo suddenly enter the actual center of the city?

          • I know .. that it’s very tricky by the Tingsta Tunnel … easy to get the wrong lane – I know that Gothenburg is a true nightmare for drivers. While living there I had friends coming to visit from Stockholm .. they saw the hotel they were staying at the whole time, but could find how to get there. So they parked in Nordstan and took a cab. And they didn’t use the car until they drove back home. So funny.

  2. Jag hade en cykel, men glömde att jag haft den till träningen då jag oftast gick. Där stod den i snön i flera veckor och rostade till sig. Blev aldrig sig lik efter det… Nu har jag ingen cykel utan förlitar mig på fötter och kollektivtrafik :-)

    • Min, den jag har nu, såg ganska bra ut när jag köpte den av en jag kände och som påstod han hade gjort iordning den. Men han visste nog inte mycket om sånt, för det ena efter det andra har jag fått göra vid. Tack och lov att han inte fick så mycket för den som han begärde. Redan det han fick känns lite som överpris.

  3. super fun – and great picture – with the different layers of snow and old bike – and the story poem topped it off so nicely.
    favorite part was the zinger at the end:
    “She was a bad buy,
    straight from the beginning.
    This second hand OBJECT!”
    :)
