Gallop

Hands toward gold sky
Their penitence proclaimed, blinded
Horse not high enough

    this is a beautiful short piece but still packs a "punch" of meaning. It's really lovely. Always, ~becca

    Hello Drake: Would love to know the inspiration for this. To me horses always symbolize, freedom, beauty and escape . My best for 2014. Love, SuZ

    Hi there! They should symbolize those things, you're absolutely right. But, in this writing's case, it didn't...at all. And an awesome 2014 to you too, SuZ!

    I came here by mistake (forgetting i had seen it just last night) and for some reason, it made a lot more sense when I saw it this second time. The last line is awesome.

    At times we have all taken a ride on a high horse. The horse typically finds a way to dismount the rider and in one way or the other the rider is brought back down to earth. I do think some people end up landing on their heads. Great metophor!

    Certainly, yes! :) But, some refuse to get off of it. Which, essentially blinds them and hurts others. Thank you so much, Richard.

    Some people are so perceptive. I read other comments and realized this was based on the proverb. Well done!!!

    Yes, they really are. It's reinforcing to the toxicity that tries to take over. Thank you very much, Andrea. Always nice when you stop by...

    Very, very well said, Sandra. Those kind of people are toxic and a stain in our humanity. Thank you so much.
