To Jimbo, Mentors, and the Horses of Marin Stables
Why do I struggle to write on the horses,
to say what they mean to me?
Do I not want to put the right brain
in the reins of the left?
this is about balance, and neutrality,
raising our energy, and lowering it,
responding to demand, and need.
I feel desire there, trust.
I lost so much in this experience of cancer
and treatment - absolutely every hair - gone.
My eyes felt huge, and hugeness is still there,
reinforced and reflected in horse eyes - horse heart.
I feel secure as though I have four legs,
and when I ride on the back of the horse,
supported by lungs and sit bones,
guided by mine,
I feel aligned.
Words drop and splat,
