Alternative Transit

Alternative Transit,

By Terry Scott Niebeling


How pleasant travel moves my eyes,

Through a wooded forest in SE Minneapolis to my surprise,


Sunshine in the day, some will hardly realize;

Sights we pass along this ride.


Past vacant Fair grounds with the brightest of blue skies.

A wise man once told me the secret to long life is about walking and using your mind.


A transit I had not thought possible, now I go too.

How do you get around, I have to ask you.


As many take their personal independent gas-guzzling wagons, others, > take a more proactive approach.


I hear people say,

“I can’t,

I won’t,

It’s impossible,

I just don’t.”

These minor things, inconveniences they call obstacles.

Look at me; I am sure it’s untrue-this is plausible.


They ride day to day, every place, here and there, every which way.

All helter-skelter, running from the weather for shelter,

It kind of adds excitement to your day.

This adds greater perspective, by adding a different way.


Bike, walk, run, wander, hike, bus, or taxi today.


So much of the city is hidden from the safe and possessive view of your four-wheeled all going vehicle.

Most won’t welcome change,

Even if it is just a little.
