Run run dark beauty…


This poem is dedicated to all those who have overcome adversity & climbed higher than humanly possible.
The photo is the sketch of a project I am busy with. Horses are my passion & I might have gotten stuck with this longer than I should for fear of not giving justice to this magnificent animal & the tremendous power exuding from it.
Keep warm! Hope you enjoy the poem. Feedback is always very welcome 🙂

Run run my race horse over the fences, hedges & highest walls, take leaps,
skip over rivers, mane blowing in the winds, undeterred… nothing stopping you.

Run run my stallion,spread the energy, black shining coat glistening under the effort
of raw power. Long gone are your days of uncertainty, battles over frail beginnings.

Run run dark beauty, never be afraid of winning, fly & never turn back, you were a
conqueror at your first faltering steps…

Run run my baby, I will celebrate your victories, as close to my heart,
as bright as the stars, as magical as your existence.

Sleep sleep my foal you’ve earned the miracle of tomorrow!

    • Thank you Isabella Rose!! This comment means a lot! I just came across an account on instagram of Icelandic wild horses and it’s breathtaking. There’s nothing as beautiful as seeing them in their natural habitat. I have seen in the past a documentary that I’ve actually posted on this blog, on how horses suffer back pain and jaw pain when it’s at the service of mankind and since then my whole idea of horses and its use have totally changed. Have a great week!
