This is a series of poems about horses in different settings and scenario’s.
It was born from my intellectual love affair with horses, their movement, grace, build and beauty is forever fascinating to me.
Combined with other unconventional subject matter Horses, tells different stories about horses, not from a simple love point of view, but from other challenging views ( WARHORSE, SPIRITCHASER,WET GRAVE,) that you will not easily come upon.
HOOF ON DIRT
Hoof on turf,
Floating on the forest floor.
Barely touching the damp dirt,
Brushing the earth.
Not breaking a single branch
Or disturbing a single fern,
Even when leaping through the thickets
Running through the forest
Performing quick turns mid leap
At monstrous speeds
That are perceived just for split moments
In between flash movements
Into the undergrowth,
Never to be seen again.
SPIRIT CHASER 2
Tired of being chased away from the tree of life,
Bored, looking for something new.
Leisurely drinking from the lake of youth,
Trotting onto the surface,
Wondering where the little elf prince is.
Ruler of this sea rising up,
Don’t feel like philosophy,
Quick flap of wings across the lake,
Into the forest.
Floating over faerie glen,
Easy landing in a clearing.
Tempted by the apples of a tree of knowledge,
Observing the curiosity underneath,
Elf prince silent approach,
Heard only when whispering into ear,
