Wagon

Western’s always had one of these in a movie,

as they rolled through wild American country on a search for

gold, minerals or prosperous plains of plenty

over rocky terrain, sandy deserts and swamps they’d travel

north south east, but mostly west on search for a fortune

Tumbleweed

#Coloryourworld #cyw #Tumbleweed

A funny little fellow

is the humble tumbleweed

beginning life

in the wind as a seed

 

Dependable in the desert

Guaranteed to sweep up

as it travels making cameo appearances

in every good western

 

Home for the children,

who leave when the moment comes

to follow mum and dad’s footsteps

in front of the film camera

 

Brothers, sisters, cousins, all

travel through desert wind – its rise and its fall

passing through wild west towns, roadsides and rock

resting in fields, and places where animals do flock

 

And as the wind turns, there’s quite a reaction

as tumbleweed moves through the scene

at words of “light , camera, action”

the cowboy film’s fans are more than keen.
