** Another product of my MFA program (poetry workshop)


Ride like the wind silver champion

of four-legged warriors.

You thrive on the memories

of your forefathers,

living in the moment

through stories told by spirits

whose hands never clawed the dirt.

Shake the earth like thunder

when you fly across the plains.

Your mane glistens like liquid gold –

gripped by the wind

with every step, every pace, every gallop.

Make for the hills

and celebrate your freedom

under the stars where you came

into this world,

and where you will someday

join the forerunners of your legacy.
