      Oh man–I can’t imagine only riding twice in a lifetime. But, like the phoenix perhaps you’ll rise from the ashes and ride more in the next lifetime 🙂

    A great Haiku.
    Another scary ride – I don’t mind being on top of the world, it’s the coming down that scares me.

    Excellent poem, and that photo made me momentarily dizzy. 🙂

    Who could help but scream, socially acceptable or not? 🙂

    Can you see a phoenix here or here?

      Believe it or not, some actually retain accepted social boundaries even in such circumstances! Now as to your other question, yes and no–mostly no (I cannot SEE a phoenix, though the theme is certainly there 🙂
