‘Look Mummy! A horse in the sky!’
‘Don’t be ridiculous Ellie. You mean in the field.’
‘No Mummy! It’s a merry-go-round horse hanging in the sky all by itself. It’s beautiful. Do you think I could ride it?’
‘Ellie. Darling. Horses are not in the sky, but if we find a fair whilst we’re away and it has a merry-go-round, of course you can have a ride. But for now, please be quiet. Mummy’s concentrating on the road and doesn’t have time for your chatter.’

Ellie slumped in her child seat, dipping her head to see the wonderful horse prancing in the clouds. It was poised with its head held high, but all too soon the sun appeared to cut it in half until all that was left was a dark cloud.
A bit like Mummy’s mood really.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    I didn’t see the horse initially, but now I do. Nice linking the dark cloud and the mother’s mood.

    Hope Mommy’s mood improved so that she can see the horse in the sky next time!

    Shapes impact our thought process so deeply …. a lesson for marketeers.

    • I never really thought about it, but you’re right. Maybe if toberlone was flat instead of triangular, it wouldn’t be so appealing on the eye (three sides of pleasure instead of just two!)

    An enchanting melding of the wonderment of a child, and their rather down to earth way of judging us adults.

    I can see the horse!

  7. It does look like a horse! Mommy needs to relax and watch the clouds. 🙂
