Rocking Horse
The rocking horse
moves back and forth
at a steady pace,
staying in one place.
The child on its back
travels here or there.
Transported to a
chosen destination
by imagination.
Who’s really being
taken for a ride?

This week's Wordsmith Studio Creative Prompt is Basket. Write a poem or story, take a photograph or use any other art form to produce a piece inspired by the word Basket. Put a link to it in the comments on the blog post. Thanks to Carol Early Cooney for this week's prompt.
