The Bonds We Make


The Bonds We Make

There are days when we wonder
come early ‘morn while barely up
the hows and whens, we ponder
why and what we’re here for

There are nights before slumber
as the golden twilight departs
have we done good deeds or blunder
while minutes and hours sped by

There will be these moments
be at sunrise or sunset and dusk
when we search and have questions
of the true meaning of life

The answer we’re constantly seeking
isn’t lost and on this I keep believing
it can be found, within the bonds we make
from our family, our love and friendships forged.

Feeling very rested after spending the past three days at Rancho Del Lago. We had early morning walks, relaxing afternoons, riding lessons and also met a lot of nice people and exceptional horses. The ranch produces pure Spanish Andalusian (Pura Raza Española) horses. On our first day, I had an opportunity to take photos of an Andalusian horse named Preciosa Oro and owner Deva during twilight. “Preciosa Oro is the resident Champion Mare, has 1st place and Gold Medal Movement Fillies 2 & under, 2nd place Dressage Sport Horse Fillies, Jr. Mares.” ~

  1. Great pics, Shey. Precios Oro is a gorgeous horse and you really captured that.

    The poem matches up well with the pics as we see bonds that have been, are still are, being forged.

  2. The last one, has just the perfect spot for the lens flare! Your poem is well written and very romantic!

    Rancho del Lago sounds very familiar, wasn;t this the former Mrs. Trump’s?

Thanks for coming by today and for your kind words. I will visit you as soon as I can. Have a fantastic day and don't forget to smile. ~ Shey
