4 White Horses

4 White Horses called to me from across their field on that 1 day They called my mind to come and see their everyday scene so...overlooked The gazes were steady the hearts true as innocence pulled us together Their knowledge of my soul was a wondrous feeling of trust... their warm soft muzzles like velvet in my hands Though fence between us... I could feel their wild hearts racing across the plains Massive white clouds rode the wind past the sun sweeping shadows over the land like prehistoric birds The scene calmly arouses memories of peace...of youth...of freedom I feel a oneness with this land...with this moment...with this dream I feel a oneness with these creatures so Majestic and Serene Time could never change their hearts or even taint their souls and I could not tear myself away when it was time to go Deep breath in... Deep breath out I wished silently that all creatures could be at such peace on that 1 day -hope you enjoy this inspiration of a creature that changed my heart

Oh my goodness Chris. Yes Yes and Yes. I'm sorry it took so long to turn to your page. If only we had more energy and time. At any rate. I so love and so are one with this entry and your words. I could not have stated it better. Thank you for gracing my day with such beauty. Read back your words and you will see. This reminds me of my entry "this love affair". Have a wonderful day. It was an honor to read.

I did not know that Andrea, thanks for telling me. It's only fitting, since that was a real turning point in my life. Twenty some years later and I only love them more :)

Hi Chris , yes theres a special bond between a woman and a horse and you epitomise that bond. This poem is the antithesis of the 4 horsemen of the apocolypse where they sow destruction. This one is about the purity of both woman and horse. Well penned

Thank you so much, and thanks for reading and appreciating this piece:) Everyone believes differently...I know the four horseman will come, but the One on the white horse will prevail.

Yeah...decided to edit type of poem from "I don't know" to free verse after I realized that was better...I am not an intellectual poet, and I don't know much about forms, I just know how to write it when it hits me...and it has always brought me fulfillment, with or without a prize:)
