Thousand Steps.

A thousand steps
along a crooked fence
broken boards
shattered dreams
rusty nail
carving in my jeans
a small creek
flowing underneath
horses stop
to take a drink
a thousand steps
along a crooked fence
mended boards
in the field
of dreams
a small scratch
in my worn out
blue jeans.

Windy, it's so nice being fooled the way Kick did. I saw passion, I saw dedication, weakness&bravery, fulfillment and joy. All attributes of Love!hug We had such a good time!dancing

Hi Kickit,

I'm guessing you're on the road at the moment - stay safe!! (I'm just now getting back to responses on your Thousand Steps challenge laugh )

I see that I actually managed to get to yours in a reasonable amount of time - but I fell far short of doing it justice...

Fabulous, fabulous poem!!!!
Yet another fantastic poet, and kind to boot!!!

Best wishes to ya,

Thanks Red,

I came up with these first two lines and was lost on how to finish. So I put these first two lines up as a challenge to write a poem using them..it was amazing, everybody on the corner contributed to their version,I mean not one person at that time didn't contribute..this is what I came up with after reading so many others...

Glad you got a tickle out of this, that's is great, thanks for reading.

Kick..hug
