Horses, Outsoar

Horses and I are free from capture,
Daring the skies to be untouchable,
Rivaling the songs of joy and glory
With ours composed by hooves and laughter.

Rough gaits force the world into disarray
Unleashing hiccups upon the earth,
And with the ever-gymnastic wind,
Balance somersaults away.

Smooth gaits of silk and velvet sigh
Over lands, evading touch and
Forging a riotous tornado
While we’re safe in its eye.

But all cease, as one’s soul is lulled into reveries
Of mellow honey overflowing,
Drizzling the sweetest taste on tongues
And granting lifelong memories.

Turbulent or merciful, the gaits never fail
Yet the greatest pace shadows a bond –
Where gravity is mocked by love and trust,
Where we take flight, outsoaring the gale.
