Photo Challenge: Evanescent

After the bay gelding’s leg
is doctored and wrapped, I
walk the fence line looking at
bent posts and hair caught up
on wire. Clues don’t change the

task ahead. Unload the rolls
of fencing and tools to start
tomorrow early. The horses
will need to stay in stalls until
the work repairing the fence is

done. Jinxed luck, new tires for
the truck will have to wait. But
then dusk creeps in with deliberate
calm, and darkness gathers all
the colors back home, mended.

(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. I can understand the being so tired your teeth hurt and having to cowboy up.
    What truly amazed me was your perseverance with the rescue corgi.
    You are a good woman!
