Wild Horses

Updated on February 2, 2012

I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.

I hear something

Calling out to me

Out into the wild

Setting me free

The rapture

Held within

Stirring feet

I am shaped by

It's very heat

So when the sun

Sets west

I will be gone

I need to go

Finding my home

In the dawn

When the sun rises

In the east

My heart stampedes

Wild horses

Had set me free

      Awesome! I love how wild mustang run across the plains. Your poem made me think of galloping horses.

      Caroline, The beautiful freedom of wild horses is captured wonderfully in your poem. The images of wild horses have captivated me since childhood, and when I think of freedom, of the wind flowing through my hair and running with the wind, I think of wild horses. Your poem brought those images and wishes back to me.

      Beautiful work, Caroline, and I love horses. Horses, both wild and tame, play a major part in my novel, "The Bellwether."
