Haiku, #13

but it looks like Denver in December, 2015

"twenty degrees and snowing"

despite cold snow icy roads
he does not want help
he will ride his bike
i imagine him
knocked unconscious
laying broken
next to an unseeing car
and i send mother prayers
that his world
will soon be
a little warmer
a little kinder
and a little less bumpy

"mother prayer"
through dark, cold, and ice,
my man child rides his bike,
dear world, please be kind.

I think you could write a whole book of mother prayers!
