SOUND OF A HORSE
Were i that horse, shiny black as mirror of night,
Wild and free, oh wind my consort would be,
Forever above our offsprings, would twinkle bright,
Two soul mates created of whispers thus are we.

Breathe thee echoes of thy sighs oh wind,
For my hooves, of silver moonbeams shod,
Can surely pound to dust of midnight thinned,
Fury for glee, whichever of rocky paths i trod

And ocean songs, when tempests humbled, shall i sip.
There too, nibble Neptune’s jewels in the sand,
Where time settles, one breath at a time, at the lip,
Of creation, once spoken everything good spanned

  4. This stanza:

    Breathe thee echoes of thy sighs oh wind,
    For my hooves, of silver moonbeams shod,
    Can surely pound to dust of midnight thinned,
    Fury for glee, whichever of rocky paths i trod

    Tickled my heart completely. I like this poem from you. It is aesthetically soothing. Great write!

  5. I love "my hooves, of silver moonbeams shod". My sister has horses. I love their benign and gentle presences. This poem is so beautifully written, Gillena.

  6. The sounds in this poem whisper along the tongue. I can imagine horse and wind as companions and the ocean and spirit of the time.
