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.

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo–I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. I take these photos with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high-tech.)

This blog is free, and it always will be. Free to read, but also free of ads because I turn away sponsorships and pay to keep ads off my site. I like to read a clean page and think you do too. If you appreciate the work I do, or if your horse does, consider making a donation.

  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

    • Thanks, Nuala. (No photo came through; I checked with WP about this once… they don’t provide that, but I’ll use my imagination.)
