Equine Writes

Back in days of yore

–there was

a centaur waging war


he’d fallen for a flighty miss,

an equine known as Pegasus,

and way back when

–as story goes

was set against

–these horsey beaus

the reason being that the beasts,

had plows to sow

not vows for priests,

inflamed, the centaur sought


for equal rights

—no more

or less–

loading bow, and loosing arrow

felling those whose minds were narrow

and though the price

he paid

–was high

in end he wed his

–soaring bride

atop Olympus mount—

“I do’s”

were neighed and nickered,

swapping shoes

Yes story is


both dreadful


–so glorious

the resolution clear, of course,

the right to love–

half man & horse.


prompt: notorious


Dee & Al


in concert

they made




a collaboration,



a fraternization,

on board

with accord

an affiliation,

the friendship

a kinship

a confederation,


the compact

of participation,

a union


–the best of relations.


prompt: collaboration


Make a blank for it


If words were curbed,

like boulevards–

–there’s only one I’d pick,

not seven, oh,

oh, heavens no,

just one could do the trick.

a term that bends,

that moves and wends,

–delineating streaks.

it flees,

~and flows~

how fishes go,

a’swimmin’ up the creek.

yes, win or lose,

this word is used,

by would-be politicians…

it tallies score,

when bases—four

are rounded after pitchin’

this word can morph’

into endorphins,

found on falling feet,

it trips through mind–

–and family lines

in similarities…

defining, too

the freedom, you–

have in your own roost…

the bottom line,

of daily grind

–and what that grind produced.

a plethora

of other’a

meanings are assigned,

to word I’d choose,

to always use–

–to run this world of mine…
