Highs and Lows:The Sprung of Spring

Image
Highs and Lows With the start of the grass flat season today (30/03/'19 ) some words about National Hunt Racing.

Inwardly we feel excitement but in life the  pulse is retrained Emotions trapped in our bodies. mostly we cope with existence - It will do for now.
So at times  we visit a theatre of dreams to witness equine heroes in action. All is a dance,  a choreography of moment  the parade;  the selection;  the speculation  anticipation,  greed;
  joining a tribal affair.

All eyes, binoculars, glasses on the start.
(to be read in a gallop )

Their off!” And so are we,  straining; peering  watching  voices released  groaning  encouraging
It’s the final lap.
anxious  crowd pulsing,  willing their mount or not.
The final phase .

Crowd find their voices crescendo building  tension release yelling screaming cursing. nothing controlled A highly animated  outburst. crying the behaviour tolerated a bubble has burst.

( to be read as a quiet canter )
