Sky Horses

Sky Horses

A Poem by Kathy Van Kurin
"

This was the first real poem I composed and at the time just tickled with. It has been formatted a little differently from its original version. Got the idea from my daughter's welded horses.

"

Sky horses

 

Like a herd of wild horses released to the heavens, 

each one running wild and free.


This heavenly Habitation of marble candy sky 

is really dreams swirled blue and cream


Hope is the glowing ember radiating and imparting

 its strength

where only a waste place may have existed.


 And in this place of thoughts, ideas, grief and pain

 hope’s quiet voice begins singing its precious refrain


.Every good gift in every precious soul

 is set in diamond facet array. 


White, perfect, just and pure

 is this stone cast

 from our Creator’s great just hand;.


For even pain lends itself within the song given.


Holy Lord, please hold my hand 
when the colors run down
 and no longer are what they should be.

Catch sky horses in twinkling stars of the night 
as my falling tears that hold your sweet light.

Make a way in the blackness when my feet lose their way
 and stumble on shattered dreams;
 the desires and hopes that have died.


 Help me learn to stand quiet
 even in pain awaiting sky horses.

 They will return on the next silver ridge. 
For God is the giver of hope denied 

that will come riding the next rainbow
 into Marble Candy Sky.

Since our equus friends are my area of expertise, i was drawn to the title of this poem, Kathy.

Expecting an ode of sorts to the majesty of these noble beasts, i instead found a poem in a soothing psalm like form; marvelling at the gifts of creation and the spirit of life that exists in our precious domain.

Life is abundant with both blessings and disappointments and we must endure both with an open heart; rejoicing in the good fortune and finding courage and hope in the bad moments. For just like these sky horses, our hopes and dreams and next moments of happiness can be just on the horizon, thundering their way across the pillowy plain and into our souls.

Another fine write, Kathy. Written from a pen bursting with exuberance and joy for life. And congrats for writing a piece with a loving devotion to the horse, for he is majesty personified. Well Done.

I treasure your writes and their subject matter. Horses are majestic and elegant and some fetch big money. We can learn a lot from them and how they roam free and wild with nobility. The title is gorgeous and so do the poem.

What a brilliant display of intelligent and spiritual thoughts. The death of loved ones is so bittersweet. No longer having them here physically is full of sorrow, but knowing they are in the greatest place beyond this world.

You must have been tickled pink with this one.
The sky is very special after a storm.
It's like a gift of the new day.

after a perfect storm, the sky usually is filled with the beautiful formations of clouds...and it is ironic....many of them are in the form of horses...

like emily dickinson said..."with their heads turned towards eternity"----
