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.
