Cowgirl Noon

Written for:  Sunday Muse #82


What a picturesque spot
for a noon day snooze.
My horse agrees. So I let
my curls unfurl, and pull
down the brim of my hat
to keep out sun and heat.
We have ridden long
and hard, Sugar and me.
Soon we will seek something
to eat, and that apple
in my pocket will be
a real treat.

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Sounds like a sweet afternoon with Sugar. Love your capturing of the photo Sara!


  3. That sounds like a perfect place to be…
    Such contrast to Robert Frost’s snowy afternoon.

    But still a bit the same
