One Single Impression: Knight


From Mystic Seaport

No steed bearing your knight,
The thunder you hear
Is your own heart,

Your rescue.



(The horse in the photo is a Percheron, a war horse whose strength could bear the weight of armor-laden knights.)

  7. Horses are haunting me lately. I see them everywhere and somehow I love them. I've never been close to a horse, though my husband bought one for my daughter when she was a tween. The horse bit her badly and we sold him.

    Anyway, your photo and wonderful poem inspired many thoughts as you can see.

  12. We are the all-powerful, all-bearing children of the world. Our minds and hearts hold the key to the secrets of the universe; and our own secrets as well.
    Lovely lines.
