My Horse And Me
Down the verdant meandering valley
Draining the dregs of the fading dusk
Beyond the threshold of thick wild woods
My white stallion gallops in emerald prairie.
Gossamer gloss glazes the supple skin
Wisps of silk cloud swirl on the satin mane
Tossing in swinging waves of the south wind
The equine beauty canters out of my heart.
Blades of jade grass sway in sinuous ruffle
The rhythm of bolting ivory grace synchronized
The tilted hooves hover in the tranquil air
Panorama of motion captured in sublime silence.
Soaked in twilight glow we cross the last pasture
Floating on the spectral beam of the setting sun
Beyond the glowing horizon of grandeur I see
The portal of heaven opens for my horse and me.
