Heading Home

I wrote this as part of the salute to Cowboy Poetry Week. They post a picture and poets do their thing. You can see it here: or just picture it for yourself as you're getting ready to head home for Christmas.


Bent blades in short grass;
A trail to where they’ve been,
to where the sun is going.

Two riders heading home.

Their shadows point the way to
bunks, beef and beans
as cotton-ball clouds
dapple distant granite wind breaks.

Two riders heading home.

No need to talk as ponies walk.
Their cowboy cadence conducts
a symphony of solitude.

Folks look and say,
“They’re Heading Home.”
But, if home is where the heart is,
they’re already there.
