An Ace in the Roll

Posted for a variety of prompts: Manic Monday (#125, questions below), Monday Music Mambo (word associations, below), Odd Shots Monday, Poetry Train, Wordless Wednesday’s Monday edition.


An Ace in the Roll

Horseflies nipping on my back,
Irritating bug attack.
Guess I’ll give myself a scratch,
Rolling in this muddy patch.

Buckling my knees, I drop,
Then I flip without a stop.
Shimmying and shaking, wow!
Gee, I feel much better now.


For Manic Monday:

1. What do you do when you are feeling very sad or depressed?

I head for the stables then, of course,
My therapy of choice? A horse!


2. Who was your first crush?

Probably orange or grape, although it may have been Fanta, rather than Crush.

3. If given a chance to skip work for a day (without repercussions), how would you spend the entire day?

Simple! Perhaps we ought to revisit question #1 again.

  1. Since I am rarely around horses, these views are definitely odd to me.
    I will add you to the Odd Shots blogroll. Hope you come back with more Odd Shots in future weeks.

  3. There's something so satisfying about watching a horse roll. Providing you're not attempting to ride upon their back, of course!
    Great photos and great words :)

  4. This is hilarious:

    '1. What do you do when you are feeling very sad or depressed?

    I head for the stables then, of course,
    My therapy of choice? A horse!'

    And your answer to 'your first crush?' - LOL!
