The Mag - #170

"Horses change lives.  They give out young people confidence and self-esteem.  They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls, they give us hope." - Toni Robinson


For, THE MAG



  At first glance, and without seeking the meaning of this artist I write ......

Märchen
 
 
Here I sit
By week within my concrete life
pondering, apart
from you.
 
Riding over the course of my days
barn sourly
 at your absence
aloof at best.
 
Being one with you
thundering across my mind's eye
Dreaming like Aphrodite.
 
Me, alive like a horse
our thoughts and legs
move in unison.
Yours in a field of clover
mine to a tenure.
 
I see your gait
running the walk
and keeping pace until
I place my kiss upon your blaze
once again we
endure.
