Equus in Agrum Est…

What a sentence – “the horse is in the field.”

Does it imply a horse-inhabited landscape

of fields rolling,

pocked with wild-flowers, a crop,

as far as the eye can see?

Does it suggest a legion of soldiers

marching by with their kits,

a simple farm-boy among them

who gazes on the browsing horse

with longing for his homestead?

Does it foretell of a scene

where an unmanned horse nuzzles

fallen men, strewn in the casual,

splayed, abandon of the dead?

Does it intimate that a horse is

 a guileless companion to man,

a witness to all that takes place

in fields everywhere?

    HEY…I don’t know why I don’t get your comments via email so I can reply to them. It is irking me to no end! SO, I am not ignoring you and I always respond to comments but I hate doing it in my own blog. SO, thanks for the compliment for the Chica Poo. She is a special girl. Like, special as in an Alien from Outer Space.

    She is going through a cuddly and clingy phase and I like it. She is very soft and smells really delicious.

    The questions rise like suggestions from each preceding image, and end with the lasting idea of a guiless horse, so noble in its willingness to be a part of our lives.
