Mustang - a Poem



Mustang

My loyal and true heart
is a cowboy's desire,

but his soothing words
and gentle hands

make promises
I know he won't keep.

I'm not so easily swayed
as are the ladies,

for my eyes will always yearn
for what he can't give me.

Perhaps that's my appeal;
we both long for the same thing.

This is for Poetry Jam "The Beast in You" and Friday Flash 55 (will link up with Thursday after 8pm) - 55 words, no more, no less.

I have been BUSY lately.  I moved yet again to a new barn... I will be updating here about that soon.

Hi Margaret, thanks for the link. It was really neat to see Sebastian standing so quietly while under saddle. Great trainer!

You and me girl....we've been at all the places to board.
I have a private(rant) blog that I go to . I vent there document my toils with trying to love my mare while having to board.
My current stable, is my 7th.

My PBO reads my blog, and takes things personally, that aren't even pointing to her. I've actually had to change posts, because she called me up and yelled at me .

Praying this new place is a safe haven for human and horse.

hi Margaret... your horse photos are amazing!
and I'm totally carried away by these ending lines "for my eyes will always yearn/for what he can't give me./Perhaps that's my appeal;/we both long for the same thing."
Cheers :)
