I wrote this and I painted this also.
I thought the pic., would resemble a
country farm atmosphere. The story is
one thaT was told to me by my parents.
There was a man who lived on a farm and one day he was out in front doing some things he had to do.
Suddenly in the distance the farmer sees a horse and rider traveling really fast and heading towards him.
The farmer became alarmed because people didn't often ride on his property and he hadn't been expecting
anyone. The rider got closer , but was still a ways off.
The farmer peaked with anxiety staring at the rider , finally getting closer and closer.
As the rider approached the last yards, he began screaming..'please give me your fastest horse'!
I need another horse..'....your fastest please help me. The farmer alarmed and immediately moved by
the rider's anxiety...compassion kicked in and the farmer said speedily..'yes sure I have a horse'.
Please....please...the farmer interrupted,'Why are you so afraid and why are you speeding so ?
See that man he's after me ', and he is death and he's catching up.
The farmer quickly looked up and saw death riding steady toward his farm. OK ', I get the horse.
The farmer quicky raced to help the desperate man and off he went , escaping from Death!
Then finally death rides up, and the farmer asked with annoyed voice tone...'You sacred the living daylights
out of that guy. He escaped you ..'I gave em fastest horse and now you can't take him. He's not here.
In fact , he is probably in the town by now'. You missed him death', . No said death.
You see I wasn't supposed to catch him here...no', I am meeting him in the very place he's heading now.
The farmer hung his head and walked slowly away , as if to say....'I really tried to help him escape , but one
just cannot cheat death'.
