This afternoon I went for a walk to the Moorabool Valley Cafe, however the cafe was operating under strict lock-down conditions. At the cafe door, I could order a take-away coffee, where I also ordered a delicious slice of cheesecake. Luckily I had my backpack on, and the package sat easily in my backpack, and I carried the coffee, I was not allowed to stay at the cafe, nor even in outdoor patio area. Anyhow off I trek on way back to home. On the way home I knew of a park bench where I could have a rest and eat my cake, and I also took the above photos on the way back….. and everything combined to inspire me to think of a poem, while sitting at the park bench, “eating my cheesecake, and writing these words”……. .
Hold Your Horses
I’m riding my white pony from the air-force
She’s a Pegasus, and the perfect horse for this course
But are we on the right track?
Am I actually heading back?
Winging our way across the continent
My loyal stead is divinely competent
And I trust her heavenly sense of direction
Flying us towards my celestial connection
