Schooling The Young Horse

Rabbits, hens, and elephants respond
According to the signals communicated--
What is the use of running?
It is forbidden   --by your hand.
Here we try to escape artfully.
Where is the exit?
Donde esta la salida?  Por favor.
No salida But we sell souvenir postcards.
After the show.

(This might all happen in a moment of decision)

Give me to be manifest and free and
As yet untamed
As the wind.
How significant do you regard freedom to be?
Freedom to be...

It's a good thing you were taken from the fields.
The buffalo people are gone.
It's a good thing you abandoned the sky,
Now eagles are leaving their nesting places
To fall quicker than shooting stars.

    Dear Desiree, I'm blown away by the rhythm, flow and uniqueness of your 3 poems. I love the 3 vignettes "from the poets eyes, nose, body and heart". Truthful and profound. "schooling " is just as sweet and powerful. Thanks looking at "Life to be", Appreciate your thoughts. I re wrote with your suggestions, please see what you think. Called "Railroading boy". However after cogitating on your poems, I think I'm only writing descriptive mini dialogues instead of poetry. Thanks again Jim Gibbons
