Wild Horse Survival


Published: November 2007

Aloft the wind
I ride the night sky
I see the world through a much different eye

Power, beauty
Strength and grace
I feel the spirits of ancestral space

Pride of herd
Sisters and brothers
I live ever watchful standing by others

A kaleidoscope of colors
No two ever the same
The short, the tall, the long of mane

I know the chance
I know the fear
I live on the edge for death crouches near

On my back I carry a load
Through storm and calm
Ever vigilant and bold

I have died in battle
Killed by man
Hunted by predator as I roamed the land

No more room
Not enough grazing
Captured, shot, sold by pound on bills of lading

Yet I survive
Sometimes an insurmountable course
I am feral, I am Mustang, I am Wild Horse

There is a very powerful message in this poem! Horses are a wonderful creature...very elegant, graceful, charming, and spirited! My family had three Appaloosas we use to board on Cooke's Ranch near Brightwood, Oregon. We got to experience the beauty of these creatures first hand! There was Cricket, Red Star, and Sparky! All three of them brought us much love and joy!

Yikes, this is a very powerful poem, every word in its perfect place. I have but one question, and that is how long did it take to write? In addition, I feel this comes from someone with a very special heart! GREAT READ! Write On!
