The Race

This week’s photo prompt is provided by Phylor. Thank you Phylor for our photo prompt!

Old Blue knew he could win this race. Hadn’t he won the one against Stepchild? Alright, that race was six years ago and Stepchild was an old nag, so it wasn’t even a challenge for him. But then after a few more races Blue had been retired. For the past few years he had lived a life of ease. Too easy. He ate well and played with the other fillies,Β though never forgetting his true calling. He missed the old days down at the track, yearned to be back in the race.

So here was a chance to prove he still had the winning streak. He waited for the signal.

  1. What a great analogy for life! We all feel we have it left in us – even when other people think we should be put out to grass! Lovely take on the prompt.

Got something to season my kettle of soup? Stir it in and savor the flavor.
