I know you're just waiting to hear how the movie film fest worked out, but, you'll have to wait a little while longer. In the meantime, how about getting down with your bad - poet -self! Carpe Diem!
This morning I was listening to National Public Radio and the announcer interviewed a poet who had started a Renga. A Renga is a poem written by a community of people where each person writes their own stanzas based on the 5-7-5, or 7-7 syllable (or sound units) pattern. With BIke Night beginning in a few weeks I thought having the Bike Night "community" write a Renga, might be fun.

I'll give my weak verse first in the 5-7-5 format. The next must be a two line stanza in the 7-7 syllable format. Alternating by stanza. 5-7-5, 7-7, 5-7-5 etc. Verses/stanzas can be posted in the comments below.
Also, your verse must draw from the idea in the previous verse.
I will assemble them and the final Renga will be read prior to the first BIke Night. This should be fun!
