“Wait up!”
“Hurry up!”
“Baggs the outside!”
“You can’t! You’re too little!”
“I wanna go on the outside”
“Mum said you can’t cos you’re too little and you could fall to your death!”
“She didn’t say that!”
“You could fall off and then you’d get sucked under and then die!”
“No!! I’d just fall on the ground!”
“And that would be enough to kill you!”
“It wouldn’t!”
“It would! You’re too little! You’re just a baby!”
“I am not!”
“Yes you are!”
“Am not! I’m big enough to ride a horse on my own without Mum! She said so!”
“Yeah but not on the outside!”
“Can too if I wanna!”
“No you can’t Mum said so!”
“Well I’m gonna ride a white one like a Prince!”
“More like a princess you girl!”

Rosedew posted her gorgeous image Le Manège

and the boys yelled this exchange at me!
Those boys are having the eternal brother argument! lol

But I must say I love the look of this piece the crackling effect is gorgeous and it makes me enjoy the vortex effect Carousels always have on me … making me revert to my childhood or waft off in a Romantic dreamland!
I always love this carnival ride, to enjoy just the pleasure of the ride!
You don’t have to go anywhere and where you stop is irrelevant and always a surprise!
How I wish it was the truth of life too …

But I’m usually stuck on a roller-coaster! lol
Chookas! ♥

adgray is a writer and a poet
- telling stories all her life,
- writing them down once she learnt how
“Scribbling! Always scribling!”
… and no there was nothing to be done about it!
Her poetry came later when the gift found her to be a ZETE segue (Zographonic Extemporanious Treatise Ekphrasis)
At times she can go into a trance-like state as poetry flows through her to the page and screen
Thank you for coming to read my words! ~ adgray~
