The sight of water – small stone


even just the
sight of water
is enough to
slow the galloping
pony inside.
She stops
to watch the branch
touch sunny ripples and
then
hardly hears her
thunder heart over
the sweet robin
singing.

    “Galloping pony” and “thunder heart” – so descriptive. Glad you found a calming spot.

      Barb, thank you. We need these spots in the middle of the day.
