I Remember…

The crowd gathering round

Music over the loudspeaker


National anthem


Pulling open the bright red gate

A hand raised in the air




The pounding in my heart

The cowboy hitting the ground




The clown draws the bull away

Seven long seconds to defeat.

  1. nice verse…we love going to the rodeo…when we live in florida we had an amateur one on friday nights…they had to stop the one where i live not because insurance got so high…thanks for linking up to oneshot

  2. It really must be very thrilling to watch.. have never been to a rodeo (Especially considering that I was in Texas for like 5 years!! :()

    Loved and thoroughly enjoyed the pace in your poem!!
    The last 2 lines made me feel like those 7 seconds must be the longest for the defeated!
