Disclosure

I know this-

the heart has longings

the mind

cannot comprehend.

*

 

Packed down dirt road

beneath these hooves,

skies aflame-

above.

 

Air minus toxic fumes

still, where is the love?

 

Evergreen walls

abound-

reach beyond

and I know fear is a liar,

wind at my back.

 

My heart longs to roam,

kick up dust

buck established ways-

race sunset

 setting path ablaze.

 

 

I tear into freedom

not looking back

shakin’ off the days

escaping this track.

*

Now…

you know.

  1. Fear is a liar….so very good. I so enjoyed this, especially the opening lines. I am a great lover of horseback riding and when one can let it go, without fear of fences or obstacles getting in the way, how glorious it is to just be free and let it all go.

  2. First off, the title is brilliant and it beckons the reader into the piece…then THIS:

    “My heart longs to roam,

    kick up dust

    buck established ways-

    race sunset

    setting path ablaze.”

    Wow. YES! What could be a better, more beautifully depicted disclosure than that? I love it 🙂
