Easy......Girl....he said...

Wild eyed prancing Pony...

pulling on her lead...

Captured in the wild...

She danced....dirt circling in the air.....

pulling back....

Searching for a way home...

eyes on the fence ahead......

Connecting to air wind and water....

smelling the other horses in the corral..

old painted design on her hair....

stepping over a lost shoe....

listening for the voice in the wind...

she smelled that too.....

feeling spirit for her direction...

and the smell of the shoe.....

a painful lost reminder ...left behind

caused her body to rear up....

wanting filled her soul....

hooves reaching towards the stars and the moon....

a hawk flew over...an owl......

Bucking.....She turned hard right.....

out run it.....she listened....to the whisper...

and ran..........

towards the smell of the sweet tall grass......

her heart getting closer......

She never stopped running............

Into freedom...
