I Have a Dream...

I Have a Dream...

A Story by Dream Hunter
"

I have a dream... and I will NEVER let it die.

"
I have always had a dream.
A dream that flows with life and love,
A dream that bursts with beauty and color,
A dream of all dreams, and yet
A dream that might never come true.

My dream is found 
in the wind combing through her mane
in her warm breath on my hand
in the deep brown of her intelligent eyes
in the velvet of her muzzle as it brushes my palm.

My dream is found
in the steadiness of her walk
in the bounce of her lively trot
in the swiftness of her gallop
in the rocking of her canter under the saddle.

My dream is found
in her neigh that rings out over the miles
in the ring of her hooves against the ground
in the wings on her feet as she soars over logs
in her pricked ears that catch my voice.

My dream is found
in the smoothness of the saddle below me
in the reins that I grasp between my hands
in the cool of the stirrup under my foot
in the strength of her body below me.

My dream is found
in the rhythm and flow of her elegant pace
in the grace and refinement of her points
in the two of us, moving as one
in her nicker that speaks of unbounded love.

And yet

I am the girl who lives far from any barn
I am the girl who's never had the chance to ride
I am the girl who lags behind a younger rider with more experience
I am the girl who may not be a horse whisperer...

But I have a  Dream
and I will 
Never
Let it Die

Absolutely beautiful. Uplifting, and the images you painted with your variety of vocabulary are vivid. My favorite is the title and ending- I have a dream and I will never let it die. A stunning title to a stunning poem. :)

P.S You and my sister are so much alike. She is a avid horse lover. She's on this site too, although she doesn't write much.

Wow, this was really quite inspirational! I'm lucky enough that I live out in the country and take horse riding lessons, but I kind of feel your pain- I cannot have a horse of my own.

Anyways, you really caught the eye with this poem. Its descriptions really let the scenery of a horse and rider as one flow through my mind, a long ride together that made even the sun seem a bit dimmer in comparison to your love. I really hope that you get to ride some day!

Maybe some of these barns are close to you:

That is beautiful! When you grow older, you should move out to the country and get a horse ranch to follow your dreams. Never Let Your Dream Die

This is the best poem I have seen yet! Your vocab is amazing! God really gave you a gift! ;)

I have read your profile, and I'm pretty sure you want a Lipizanner, right? Iv'e been wanting a horse for a very long time too. Just keep following your dream! :)

P.S : If you haven't noticed, my spelling is horrid! ;)
