Horses (after Kay Ryan, loosley ^^)


Manes tossing
Tails flicking
Hooves thundering,
Blood banging joy,
The road forever
Before them,
Wild ride of a race,
My pumped-up heart in tow,
The horses go,
Across the fields
And into forest.
They race against
The dark descending,
Light leeching night.
Star-points faint speckled
Dust spread across
The backdrop
Of the sky,
She wondered why,
The fates had doomed
Her now to Wander so,
In search of the place her
Own heart wished to go.
