The Elbows have it

May 16, 2019

 


The angle of the elbows
Is something to attend
Keeping soft and grounded
Floating in their bend.

Elbows offer hands to horse
Fingers gently aid
Carried hands guide a course
With balance to create

Fingernails turned in
Pinkie under thumb
Elbows rest beside the waist
Swinging like a plumb 

Straightness in our arms
Blocks the hand and wrist, then
Tension in our shoulders
Makes a horse resist.

Hands create a dialogue
Not to fix and hold
The elbow angle is the key
If the truth be told.
