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

You have unlocked the chains of doubt..
You have demolished impossibility...
You have embraced humility...
You have mastered its meaning..
You have made it...

You have made it to the heart of thousands...
Touching each one of them with your remedy of wise words..
You have moisturized dry sands...leaving them moistured with the water drops of hope.. 
You have opened closed eyes...letting them see the best sights in life...
You made it, you sure did..

Abstracted from the poem Titled YOU HAVE MADE IT TO THE WALLS OF GREAT...NOT OF FAME...

Write On Poetry Cowboy

I think it’s about time 
I had a talk with you...
To begin with 
I’d like to bow and say
Thank you

To my sisters and brothers on PoetrySoup
You’ve been wonderful...
In sincere appreciation
I salute you

I take nothing for granted
Giving enough respect
Grateful for the support I've gotten
The good friends I’ve met
A penny for your thoughts
Riding through the Great Plains
I’m a poetry cowboy
On a horse with no name

So don’t be afraid
To be bold...
Put your heart to pen and paper 
Let it all unfold

I am what I am
Just want to let you know
I've hung up the guns
To express my soul

I’ll be writing poems 
Light years to come
Pictures painting words
Soul brushing with love

On the canvas of outer space
These words will shine out 

(((I’m crazy about you baby)))

Signed by
Poetry Cowboy with love

Write Poetry Cowboy...Write on... Sunset, Sunrise... keep writing on
