Recipe for Dressage

Defrost one horse
(preferably dark brown
with white spots scrambled
on his rump).
Add a rider
(long legged, green eyed).
Saute in a sandy arena, toss
with wind and weather:
freeze in February,
baste with April sunshine,
broil in July.
Mix canter with halfpass,
fold in harmony
and happiness.
Dust with music;
Dance.

Prompt: Poets United Think Tank Thursday; write a poem about a recipe.
