Carrot Ranch Sue Vincent Rodeo Classic

On February 1st, the team at Carrot Ranch set a competition in Sue’s honour using one of her photos for inspiration. The brief was to write a 99 word piece or 99 syllable poem and keep it under wraps until the winners were announced.

You can find all the entrants and winners here
Congratulations and well done everybody.

Though not a winner, this was my entry to go with Sue’s picture.

The plain beckoned, distant, and calling on the wind.
How many billion footsteps had set foot on this land?
All different, all unique, all the first of a journey.
Animal or man, four legs or two, bird or reptile, each found their way here.
The expanse was great, and once beyond the trees, a new exploration would begin.
This is a place found in dreams, simplistic beauty and peace, totally unspoiled by progress or greed.
Nature at its best and most forgiving, a clean canvas to what lies beyond.
All it takes is one step……….. when we are ready.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour 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! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
