Photo Challenge: Against the Odds


Roused by a whisper
from a lost distance,
through cold glass
windows in deserted

basements, down wet
alleys, past dumpsters
and stained mattresses,
heart-sore and bruised.

Relentlessly following
switchback dead ends,
thirsty creek beds and
childish yearning, finally

to surrender the ache.
Come to rest on the
cooling prairie at the
far edge, by the stars.

  1. Anna,

    Beautiful, as always.

    You have to have fun and laughter too, right? Here are the ‘four musketeers’ and, no, we haven’t been drinking. Just working on some drill work with happy horses!

    Love, Nuala
