Taking the Bate

Spoken word dangles

A bit of fodder for mind

You don’t take the bate.

Art Prescription: have you ever been tested!? When you know someone is trying to get you to take the bate?

Do you realize when others cross boundaries due to their issues?

Relationships are challenging. I really just want to cruise down the middle lane….

New Horse at Barn July 9, 2016

Just off the trailer

He takes a breath, and decides

The grass is green here.

Art Prescription:  A new horse arrived at the farm today…Space…a registered Paint. Cool as a cucumber, he gets off the trailer and proceeds to enter his new home with enthusiasm. Just amazing these creatures who live totally in the moment.

Different seating

You on a plane, me saddle

My ride takes me home.

Art Prescription:  There’s no place like home. What a beautiful day to take my boy Finn out on the trail. He takes such good care of me…sound, soft, reliable.

Awareness October 11, 2014

Quiet on the farm
Horses graze, content, focus
Ears perks, my presence.

Art Prescription: I love walking out into a herd of horses. I watch them notice me with curiosity. Their ears perk as their awareness shifts. Herd behavior has deep roots for these prey animals. To have them accept me and allow me to enter their space is an honor.

Horse Trail Ride April 23, 2014

Through long green grass fields

Into the woods, by cows, geese,

Trail ride perfection!

Art Prescription:  Spring experienced on the back of a horse is bliss. Look down and see wildflowers at their feet. Watch their ears and eyes as they take it all in. You are on their back and they carry you with each step, mutual trust!

Haiku December 6, 2012 Compassion

Compassion:  to walk

A brief time in other’s shoes

Give of time and heart.

Art Prescription:  The holiday season brings out extremes in feelings. At any given point in life you or I may respond differently to a world where “everyone else seems normal.” No matter what holiday you celebrate, there is bound to be some roller-coaster of emotions. The perfect gift, time and heart!
