My Horse And Me

Down the gradient of meandering verdant valley Draining down the dregs of the fading dusk Beyond the threshold of the wild woods thick My white stallion gallops in the emerald prairie. Gossamer gloss sparkles on the supple skin Wisps of silky cloud swirl on the satin mane Tossing on swinging waves of the south wind The equine beauty canters out of my heart. Bent blades of jade grass sway in sinuous ruffle In sync with the rhythm of the bolting ivory grace The tilted hooves hover in the transfixed air Panorama of motion captured in sublime silence. Soaked in twilight glow we cross the last pasture Floating on cascading spectrum of the setting sun Beyond the glowing horizon of grandeur I see The portal of heaven opens for my horse and me.

Great ending, and the 'pace' resembles the speed of a horse's gallop--ws that intentional? Congrats!
