At first light

We should live out our lives
like a horse running free
at first light

not head hanging low
in the mist
grazing on grass stubs

the world is a tumbledown house
at the side of a road
going nowhere

I have been all along
from the start

without knowing

    Wisdom here. I also like the word “tumbledown”. It will show up somewhere in future musings.

      I pass by a field of horses most mornings, walking the dog. I have yet to see one running for the sheer joy of being alive but I live in hope – all the best to you oldmainer!
