With the swagger of a swimmer
approaching the starting block
January blooms covering a Christmas cactus
in magenta splendor;
He cantered toward the white arena fence
with his mane 
full of frosty wind.
He sailed over

We watched his spotted rump
trot away towards
a patch of winter grass.

  1. I wrote on my blog in response that the use of the word 'swagger' alone conveys confidence. And I love that you use the Christmas cactus and its blooming in winter as another example of confidence.You paint a vivid picture of Winston and his character.margo
