Out-wheeled NaamaYehuda

At the spot

Where one heart stopped

And others pause

To ponder,

It stands

Out-wheeled into pallor

In grief

For what was lost

And what might have been

If there hadn’t the need

To mark this


For a life that can

No longer

    • Toda! It is a very sad reality, and the bikes are beautiful and haunting. It is important that they commemorate those who died, because it allows people to stop for a moment (and hopefully wear their helmets, drive carefully, and teach themselves and their children to follow traffic laws no matter how they are commuting…).


  1. Too sad! My husband was cyclist killed on the roads. Even all these years later I still take extra care when I overtake cyclists while I am driving.


    • Oh, Suzanne, I am SO SO sorry to hear this. It is such a tragedy. I can hardly imagine. Yes, we must all take extra care when it comes to cyclists, who people do not realize are so vulnerable against the heavy, fast, often blind-eyed machines. It only takes a moment to devastate a life or save it.
