Summer Solstice



Writing today
hot as it is
finding my place
in the hay
saddles racked
ready to ride
passion, drama
seasoned rawhide
horses look on from
their linear stalls
wishing they could
come an sit
an tell me the tales
of their living, that
life is for writing
riding and loving….

Hi! I saw you on World Bloggers. You joined also the group I'm in. :-)

Reading this poem, I imagine that you are really sitting on hay stack and enjoying the horses around while they neigh.

I really enjoy your poetry. You have wonderful word choice. I used to write poetry frequently about fifteen years ago and recently started up again. I hope to reach a point with my poetry where it flows as beautifully as yours and evokes such strong feeling.

I've tagged you for the Liebster blog award, because I really like your blog and it has fewer than 200 followers. For details follow this link http://myinspiredlifewithfibromyalgia.blogspot.com/2012/06/yay-my-first-blog-award-liebster-award.html.
