Jeb Stuart, in the midst of war,
Rode by his family.
While on his horse, he kissed his wife –
Goodbye in brevity.

Mere two days later, he was dead,
Kissed by a sniper’s bee.
It was a single touch that took
Him to eternity.

Of Stuart, Sedgwick later said,
“He ruled the cavalry.
He was the greatest officer
That we will ever see.”

The bullet, kiss, the spoken praise
Were each a single tick,
Upon the ages’ lumb’ring clock,
From one life that we pick.

How quick a stroke a brush may make
And change fore’er a hue
On which the wind will blow all day
And fall, in mornings, dew.

When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don’t stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven’t hoed,
And shout from where I am, “What is it?
No, not as there is a time to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.

Cushioning The Blow

A pink slip
Would go better with
A pink rose.

High On The Hoof

If horses
Lived like that, how did
The people?

Smooth And Rough

Life’s river:
Moments serene; some
Turbulent.

The Pay Was Hay

I’m wanted
To replace Rudolph.
I said “Neigh.”

Ohh!  What If?

Just looking
At the photo’s drop
Sends shiver.

Is A Buggy Too Much?

Progress stopped
At one point in time.
But why then?

All Or Nothing

One bouquet
All her hopes and dreams
This moment.
