Wild Horse

by Blaze’ncowgirl, age 15

Wherever you go

Illusions follow

Leaving us bewildered behind

As you disappear

Through unknown paths

Many times

Unbeknownst to me

Secretly you watch

Till something scatters you away

And then there are times

Never for long

When I ride beside you in my dreams

With the wind grabbing our manes

And mixing them into one

Beginning March 1st 2010, Girls Horse Club will host March for Wild Horses here at our virtual barn. The intent is to use our collective, creative voice to speak out for the rights of wild and feral horses on public lands, and show our support for the individuals and organizations who are their loving protectors. Throughout the month we’ll publish stories, essays, poems, and artwork created by horse girls, inspired by wild horses. Please check the event calendar to the right for key dates, beginning with open submissions on February 19th.

Wild Mustang by Blaze’ncowgirl was first published at GHC in the former Loft Book Club, and was a finalist in our monthly Judge for Yourself competition in October 2008.
