Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge – Day Three

IMG_3627It’s a week-end, so let’s have a bit of fun today. I don’t normally write poems, but I was trying something different this week. Here we go.

Who Am I?

Who am I?

A dog? A cow? Wait, it looks a bit like a horse.

Yes, yes, a horse, with thick black mane, slick body and burning charcoal eyes

Full of fire and passion, ready to gallop around the world.

Wait a minute… What’s that then?

That ragged horse. Or is it a cow?

Pale and withered, had by life.

Oh, I see, that’s how I look from the outside,

While desperate to be a wild black horse inside.

Deep sigh.

Who am I?

I was nominated to take part in this photo challenge by wonderful Ula. Although we’ve never met, I feel I’ve known Ula for a long time. Her writing is exquisite and touches something deep inside me. I nominate Julia. I came across her blog because I kept seeing 100-word pieces as a part of a challenge she created. It kept amazing me how rich 100 words can be and how much we can communicate through those. So, in the spirit of trying it for myself, today’s poem is under 100 words.

The rules of the Five Photos, Five Stories Challenge are:

1) Post a photo each day for five consecutive days.

2) Attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction, non-fiction, poetry, or a short paragraph. It’s entirely up to the individual.

3) Nominate another blogger to carry on the challenge. Your nominee is free to accept or decline the invitation. This is fun, not a command performance!
