THE WOOD’S ROUGH AND WET

ps March 2017 7

A wooden fence. The end of the path? The wood’s rough and wet. The fence’s small, no, hold on, it’s broken. There’s a plaque – cold, steel – then the hand drops. Go back. It says something. Not in your language, though. And friends have always been teasing for trying. For what? “It’s not like you can read “our” books!” Did they shake their heads? Skeptics do that.

E… n..t.. r…a.nce – s.. i.. gn… – f..or.. –  e..qu.. i..n.e… – f.. a ..c..ili.ti. es..

There’s more. Will it explain why it’s broken?

S..t..a..bles – f…a..rms –

The mind gets there before the hand.

T..r..a.i..ning.

  1. Love the phrase “the wood’s rough and wet.” It creates such a tactile image that sets the tone and the unfolding. A great snapshot of what remains when the horses break free. Makes me ponder the idea of “training” too.
