a lonely feral horse poets united poetry pantry #19

(She dreams of companionship)
Sun shines on her mane
Butterflies surround her
A mustang neighs, wants
to rest – deeply
She must lie down


Alone – she cannot achieve this,
She must keep watch
A beautiful feral horse is left alone
While sleeping, standing up

  2. dasuntoucha,
    Thanks and it is true of horses. If they are alone they will not lie down to sleep, because they feel the need to keep watch. Beautiful animals but very nervous.
