And now for something completely different …
Some time ago I started a blog dedicated to the sonnets of Shakespeare “The Equine.”
Poet’s Paddock was born of my love for the work of William Shakespeare and the crazy coincidence that my horse, Bear (his barn name), came into my life with the registered name of “Shakespeare,” (his father being “Shakespeare In Love”). The fact that I enjoy writing poetry also factored in.
The idea was to try to see the world through my horse’s eyes and write it down in verse. Since his name is Shakespeare, the sonnet seemed the natural form for the poetry to take.
(There is a little free verse and other rhyming schemes thrown in for good measure …)
It’s all very tongue-in-cheek and has proven to be a wonderfully fun outlet for my poetic inclinations.
So, when you have a quiet moment and an inclination to catch a glimpse of life on the farm from the other side of the fence ;-), feel free to visit Poet’s Paddock.
Shakespeare will enjoy your company.
Nurture what you love …
