Spirit of Equus

Written by: Amy Green

Equus -
From birth I felt your
vigorous presence-
In this body, it is a tingle of joy,
Upon which I fully enjoy-

Spirit horse
You have taught me the true voice of the wild
You have showed me the coup of burden
You have let me know it is all a choice-
In your company I rejoice
In your strength- Secure in your power.
From you, the dreadful cower-
Specter of wind, shadow the sin
Always creeping within-
You bring the light.

Within the constellations
We are close
My Aquarius, below Pegasus
and southeast of Equuleus
Coincidence?
So inseparable are we
In the flesh you have come to me
I see your actions as a language
ingrained- no voice
Yet- You tell me everything
with the simple swish of a tail-

Swiftly you emerge
With a lightening trail
When I seek freedom and flight
Take me, Equus spirit, to a place
where we gallop together racing the clouds
Where love is unrestrained 
and liberation abounds-
Synchronized are we in vitality-
As one are we in flesh-
Kindred spirit
Immortally we mesh.
