TEN THOUSAND WHITE HORSES

I open up my eyes on this dark November morn Up bright and early at the very crack of dawn When the sun she ascends I am happy to admire As I dress in my warmest winter attire Then gently make my way down towards the sea For the sight of her waves always fills me with glee Hearing her voice so powerful and low Watching in reverence her ebb and her flow Holding my breath at waves twenty foot high When her band of white horses come galloping by The spray from their hooves refreshing my skin They are pounding towards me inviting me in So tempting are they on this November day Sheer beauty and power as her waves they do tower I am drawn to her side so majestic is she Her call loud and clear ~ though I must not adhere And watching in awe her sheer power I adore Frozen to the spot and completely mesmerised As ten thousand white horses gallop into the skies… Written 14th November 2020

Beautiful metaphors Ann and, as Greg says, powerful stampeding images! So glad to know you didn't accept their invitation to "come in" rather staying on the shore. Your picture is a sensory feast. Congratulations on your first place win! Harvest blessings to you dear friend.

Yes Victor for the last two days the high tides have been incredible to watch, despite the very strong winds and showers today, I really felt so good after walking and watching her band of white horses galloping by,,, with kindest thoughts Ann xx
