The love of a horse


the little one has been asking….

mom, can you take me for a horseback ride today?

but I am busy.   so the saddle sits…dusty


the bridle is covered in cobwebs.

it’s been too long.  and I have forgotten…



I have forgotten that time goes by slower on the back of horse.

I have forgotten that love speaks with many voices.

I have forgotten the bond between a woman and her horse.

and in a few short seconds of feeling this beautiful animal move I remember.


I remember that a gentle gesture speaks more words than anything I can say.

I remember that I can control you with a whip but I have only taught you fear, with patience you learn love.

I remember why I need you, what drew me to you in the first place.
