Horseshoes In Silk Stalkings

Horseshoes In Silk Stalkings

A Poem by The Rock And Roll Cowboy(REBEL WITH A CAUSE)

 

Through fire and from hammer

Its shape takes form,

Meant to fit the backbone

Of the journey

But is not protection

From all that lines ahead,

For the path is paved

With bumps and debris

That can make traveling feel lame.

Even if you dress the tales

In white tie and tails

Dusty roads won’t let it last long

And the weight of dirty horseshoes

Won’t be held by the truth.

I wonder if you mean to use the word “stockings” instead of “stalkings”? I love the way you think of two contrasting images, both worn on the feet, both could be party to the journey you describe, both could be the focus of this tale, imparting different sensibilities. You have a knack for picking symbols & then building an intriguing message around them! (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

From all that lies ahead? Or From all the lines ahead? I trip up on that one...but I get that sense that what comes from the ground grows up up up...staying down in never forever :P MMM good coffee and life lessons cowboy!

You are so correct my friend. Thank you for your thoughts.
You bring to life the blending of strength and tenderness. Even on those dusty roads there is light, a path of peace coming it seems.

it is totally a poem full of irony but then it is what makes this writing unique it is also symbolical as we try to describe the real nature of what life is very philosophical too.

Thank you very much. I like your interpretation of my poem.
Hey. It's been a while. And then I stumble upon the first of your writing that I stumble upon the meaning. But if I dig inside the lines I think it's about trying things along the journey that maybe don't work out so well -- you're still going to get bumped and scratched and dirty along the way ...

It's better to be dead and cool than alive and uncool
