“A POCKET FULL OF ROCKS”

The doors opened wide, A Cowboy tired an’ worn. Tears in his hide, Even his chaps were torn. Walkin’ towards’im, the old Padre heard, He’as mumblin’ a story wild. Sixty moons back he’d lost the herd, How he liked ‘ole Curly cooked mild. Twelve moons back God gave’em gold, Some nuggets, a little dust. Faintly the Cowboy told, “Only Him can a feller trust.” He reached threw his chaps, Slowly their hands embrace. Exhausted he nearly collapse, Hearin’ the dust leave it’s trace. All to Him I’d give, The first house of His I see. Reacon He let me live, A Padres’ Cross set’em free He opened up his hand. As the Cowboy staggered away. Rocks an’ siftin’ sand, Helped the Cowboy pray. By: JW “Ish” Fellers ~ TexasCowboyIsh September 21, 2009 ~ Monday

    Thanks Ms. Carolyn for the kinds words. Keep that 'ole hat handy, Ma'am. The wind of inspiration could be blowin' threw your hair directly. I've actually fine-tuned this one a little, very little, since I posted it here. This was really kinda a ruff-draft, if-you-will. I knew I needed to fill-in some places to get the image in my mind converted onto paper. I'll put it up so-as ya'll can see which one best. Thanks again, Ms Carolyn. JW ~ TexasCowboyIsh

    I really enjoy your cowboy-style writes, JW. This has a magical quality to it, kind of like the movie "High Plains Drifter." My cowboy hat is sitting on a hook next to my computer. When do we ride? Love, Carolyn
