Put our saddles in storage
side by side,
polish the dust off
our day ride,
by the look in your eyes,
I take it you've fallen
for me hard.

Caught in the stirrup,
from the kiss, we can't
look back,
all written in horsehair
ink, walk away with
braided memories,
free-reigning lust
loped the sagebrush

Rented me for a day, I
threw in the wildhorses
for free.

Women have come and
gone, bought dreams
here with me for the day,
bunked for the night,
cried for a month.
What is it about
women, wildhorses, and

Great question, Sage. Makes me think. Makes me wonder about me. Love and peace to you,

Ahhh, so now you are for rent? Good write Sage..I like the image of dirty women ohh dusty ..seriously I rode once and the horse knew it and walked right into the middle of a lake and stayed there..I love dthe 3rd stanza even though I joked but not sure I get the third one..why did they cry for a month? I could say that about my foster kids minus the lust of COURSE but I think I may have been the only one crying if they stay for that month..

I agree with Jerry Sage! You penned a gem with this one! We all have to ask that question once in awhile,otherwise we get stale from being in a rut...

Great poem and question dear Sage! As is said, always honour the question. The answers often change, but not the question!!
I love this line too:
"...Caught in the stirrup,
from the kiss..." Gorgeous!
Love & Wildhorses Suzie :-D

Damn, but you outdid yourself with the wordplay in this one, Sage. I mean, "written in horsehair ink," and "braided memories,/ free-reigning lust," never mind that the poem itself was just fucking good!!!

Excellent write, Sage; very well done! BRAVA!
