Each of us is a gift -

Jane and I spoke this morning.  I am still struggling to write of my horse experience.  I ended up with a herd of poems, and this is my horse in the herd for today.



Each time I went to the horses,

and the equine therapy workshop,

I wanted to bring something,

cookies, or cakes,

and each time, I found I had the energy to bring

only myself,

and, in that,  I realize I am enough.

My presence is a gift.

The people of Marin Stables created

an arena, a circle of enclosure,

so I could learn to walk, canter, and trot.

They greeted me with food, hugs, and huge smiles,

and patient instruction repeated

over and over again.

I came while still in chemo mind,

where each moment, while nebulous, is new. 

They train horses.  Horses train them.

We work together, asking, requesting, inspired. 

I imagine each country, meeting in just this way.

Ask!  Request!  Inspire!
