Hitching Post (Found Poem) - Poem by Chi

White divorced Christian
lady or mother,
despondent
with waking up alone.

Would swap corporate suits,
high heels and air-
conditioned offices
for the cries
of newborn lambs,

the smell of rain
on the newly ploughed fields,

the feeling of freedom,
sun and wind -

as she rides her horse.

She wants to share,
more than just
a bottle of wine.



April,1998, Hogsback, South Africa.
