Spring Haiku – Abhinav Baruah

“Whirlpools of hilly Spring River
Thump and dance on adamant rock bed
Dimple of my smiling dream girl”

2) At his New Mexico ranch, former Green Beret Rick Iannucci invites war veterans, suffering from Post Turmatic Stress Disorder, and other problems, to work with horses and heal his wounds.

“Rick Iannucci, director of Cowboy Up!, a horse therapy program for combat veterans, keeps a little notebook with quotations in the back pocket of his jeans.

As he searches for words to explain how working with horses helps heal war-torn veterans, he pulls it out and reads aloud the words of Winston Churchill, who served in the Boer War: “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.”
