Sojourners


Here's this week's entry for Three Word Wednesday’s prompt on “empty,” “highway” and “ignored.”

Sojourners

We rode along beribboned curls,
Abandoned by titanic girls.
A broken stripe, it marked the pace,
As we tore up the empty space.

My maned companion, Zanzibar,
He carried me to lands afar.
His hoofbeats rattled in discord,
On silent pathways, thus ignored.

The highway, kept to us alone,
A sweet long-distance chaperone,
As there we journeyed, shore to shore,
To leave our home forevermore.

  3. I like the story line, of being out on the open road with a horse for companion. A strong rhyme and rhythm too.
