Free Verse .....all about horses


No finer sounds to be lain upon this earth
than the horse's hooves against a hard pan trail
Or to watch as in motion goes his withers
his main
his legs
and tail
Nor brighter shimmer of steel in reflection
than the polished shoes flickering into the sun
That's just when nature and
man come alive
to realize that with a horse
he is one
As in one motion there is no longer any
difference between his body and mine
We have learned to fly
together through it all
through the universe
through life
and time

So God went ahead and made all kinds of animals. He made one very unique. An animal almost specifically designed to meld man closure to the natural. One that can operate in perfect synchronicity with man across all land. Sure we say that the dog goes with man. But man goes with the horse, they can be as one. No not better than man and woman or is it on any given crisp fall morning.

Beautiful views and a horseman indeed. I have never ridden a horse maybe, one day.
