100 Word Challenge – Week 33

Joining the weekly 100 words challenge for Grown ups. This week the prompt is to use the following picture with no more than 100 words.

It stood in the foyer, replicating its true graceful form.  There was something about the almost real like structure that simply made you reach out and stroke its mane and side. All at once, you can envisage it running and frolicking in the fields, enjoying rides and sugar lumps. Or perhaps simply wandering and grazing on grass and the odd daisy and buttercup; even enjoying the sunshine and life.
Suddenly, you are cast back into the here and now and realise that this wonderful structure has never frolicked in a field, munched on grass and flowers or enjoyed sugar lumps.

  1. I love that we can take a moment to believe that sculptures have life. Love the pottery horse as well, I can feel it's tail swinging at flies.

    Enjoyed this- and really like your picture of the clay horse- incredible art work.
    It's amazing how a sculpture can look so real yet unreal all at the same time. You captured that thought well.
