horses moment

and so
on this most amazing day
it was while cocooned by the presence
I started to pray for my friends
faint at first
felt more than heard
thundering hooves shaking the ground
nostrils flaring
muscles glistening and magnificent in their rippling
racing from afar
coming ever nearer
until I was one with them and the shuddering land
covered in earth ground to dust by their racing feet
their rhythm perfect
each one perfectly in tune with the other
there were many
and yet they ran as one
in their embrace
we ran as one
there was never weariness
only a desire to reach the horizon
and then the next horizon
knowing all the while
it was not our horizon
but his horizon

what a run
