Homage

by Madelaina, age 14

Each rear, it draws me near,
Each buck steals them from gravity’s binds.
Yet they home back to the ground
Where glorious food entices their minds.

My every blink,
A shutter click,
And photos are printed onto memories.
Lying here, no need to think
I watch in lulling reveries
As mustangs run
In homage to the sky.

  2. Awesome revelation Made! I love looking at old photos of mustangs during the western times. We look at the past of our Nation, the wars, the explorations, the travels, somtimes even provided themselves for those who were starving. Who carried us through all of this? The horses.
    awesome poem
