Let Go

In the most dreary of moments,

In the darkest hour of day,

There is release that exists

So that in moments, your worries all fall away.

When life overwhelms you

And you long for your hassles to cease,

Just dust off your saddle, pull on your boots

On the back of your horse, you’ll find peace.

When swinging up into the saddle

Your worries will stay on the ground.

For riding is an intricate rhythm

Where hoof beat and heartbeat resound.

Your horse will always let you know

If worries still clutter your mind.

With a bolt, or a buck, or a balky stop

You’ll think only of him, and your cares fall Behind.

For as any horse would tell you,

You cannot fear the future nor dwell in the past.

You must live life in each moment

And be fully present to last.

So take comfort in the ears pricked forward

And find laughter in your mount’s playful buck.

See beauty in his soft brown eyes and flowing mane,

And no problem or worry will ever find you stuck.

So the next time the odds seem dead against you

And it feels like the end is near

Just drive out to Harmony Ranch and remember;

Once there, the world becomes clear.

Now take a deep breath of sweet horsey scent

And exhale all your worry and woe.

Step into your stirrup and flow with the rhythm

Of hoof beats and heartbeats

And let go.

HAIKU

Brown eyes are gazing

Soft and kind and quizzing

Where are my carrots

MY MAN

My man is dark and tall

One would think I had it all.

No flowers or cards have come my way

But I'm still happy at the end of the day.

He does most things when asked,

He comes when called and completes most tasks.

He's the man in my life, what can I say?

I wouldn't have it any other way!
