Here's this week's entry for Wordless Wednesday (Saturday edition) and Jane’s Inspiration’s Saturday prompt on “adventure.” Photo by Nickers and Ink.


Sun’s soft ray and pasture play
Simply take our breath away.
Colts and fillies run and romp;
Soon the horseflies, they will stomp.

Yanking halters, chewing manes,
Living free from ropes and reins,
Horses practice tug-of-war
In their paradise outdoor.

In their frolic free-for-all,
Equines rear up, strong and tall.
Here, untethered, youngsters grow,
Chestnut coats, in sun aglow.

Someday soon, their lives will change,
And their schedules rearrange.
Trained by gesture, cue and word,
As they long for treasured herd.
