Smoke clouded his view of the door,
clouded his search for an
Oscar de la Renta.
Her sexy voice had penetrated his brain.
Sexy, she said she would look
dressed in red.
He waited for a vision of perfection.
Waited and wept inside. Outwardly
"I prefer bohemian anyway" and
dragged his loneliness home

This is for Three Word Wednesday CCLVI. This week's words are Drag, Mumble, and Penetrate. I hope it is ok to use different tenses.
I originally wrote this as a short story for Magpie Tales #80 entitled "Goin' Home with B. B. King" (click if you want to read it - and listen to an awesome video of "Everyday I Have the Blues")
I also wanted to play with a version for Friday Flash 55 (a story in 55 words) hosted by "The G Man". I think it lost a bit of whimsy and detail, but it was a fun "condensing" writing exercise.

Many of you know that I have purchased a horse. His name is Oberon and he is a Buckskin Quarter Horse. My daughters and I are learning (and I am re-learning) horses through "Natural Horsemanship". What is that, you ask? Well, I invite you to visit my "Just Horses" blog and find out. The following two photos I took the first day we got him - he came to us all the way from Northern Michigan. The am participating with the first photo in "The Creative Exchange, hosted by Lisa Gordon. She has a nice post today about finding her style along with a big linky with participating photographers.
