|My girls learning to ride|
Summer breezes ruffled her mane,
the wind caught in my hair.
Off on an adventure we went,
the two of us made a fine pair.
The birds chirped and twittered
as we walked along the forest path.
I was in heaven enjoying my freedom
thankful for months of no math.
"Rain Drops Keep Fallin' on my Head"
quite often a favorite melodic choice.
Her ears happily twitched as we trotted along,
she alone appreciated my alto voice.
We owned time; we could do as we pleased.
A quick splash in the stream?
Yes, right before we rounded the fence
on our way home for a scoop of ice cream.
Summer air, breeze, song, and sun.
Add swimming and sweets, of course,
and that, for me, is "summer chillin'"
done right! Now all I need is a horse!

This is for the "Poetry Jam". Please hop over and enjoy the other entries - I am hosting and the theme is "Summer Chillin'". There is a day or two left to enter until next week's "flavor" is introduced!
I am currently looking for a horse to lease and my girls are leasing the pony Icy this month, enthusiastically learning to ride (and doing a swell job, I might add!) I am really enjoying spending so much time with my girls and looking forward to the day we can ride the forest trails.
