IGWRT's Fireblossom Friday - "Lonely"


Lonely

Joined at the hip
we had each other's back,
laughed at each other's jokes,

our shadows sole witnesses
to summertime antics
and winter crazies.

Lonely stretches long before me
every afternoon, reminds me
how much we both miss you.

This is linked with Imaginary Garden with Real Toad's - Fireblossom Friday - A Crack in Everything.  

I am squeezing this in here and I KNOW I have lots of visiting and commenting to catch up on.  We are getting ready for a small horse show this weekend - my daughter's first.  So, I am busy cleaning up a muddy horse and equipment.

But, isn't he cute?  These photos were taken last summer...  It is a schooling show, and their first - it's all about having fun.   Any of you who admired Sebastian, he is at this barn too with his owner, James Cooler.  "HERE" is a recent video of him (you can fast forward through the talking)

AND my girls and I aren't the only ones in our family who love horses.  My son just might be the youngest horse whisperer!  If you have the time, click HERE to see a 30 second video.  I hope it makes you smile (it obviously cracked ME up! :)

OMG, I loved these photos so much, and the video of your little guy. Especially love the top photo, your daughter stretched out on her beautiful horse. You all live a charmed life. Your kids are so lucky. I hope the horse show is GREAT.

Love the poignant poem and the shadow photos too - very affecting.

I know the feeling all too well, as I live through the last year of my last child's school career.
I love how happy your daughter looks in these pics, and how contented with his rider is the horse?
