The Sun and The Stallion

The Sun and The Stallion

A Poem by MsJewel

                             

Waiting, salivating,

hungry for deliverance…

Let it be the thundering of wild horses, right outside my window

fueling the ache

     

I can hear him calling,

Mount up girl, it’s time to ride

I run to the window

my naked frame hidden behind veils of black

the skeletal truth staring back

 

I lick my lips, the taste of salt in the cracks

and I’m off

 

Devouring the open road

Riding hard on time’s line,

where space opens up

Heading for the desert

where it’s as hot and bitter

as me

 

I allow my mind to wander, if only for a moment

remembering the consummate host of warriors,

 wanderers and poets

feeding my ever-increasing hunger for life

Yet never satisfying

 

I dismount quickly, my horse with no name

The sun and the stallion,

the only companions I need

Julie, it is such a nice surprise to see a poem from you! Your inspiration must be that "host of warriors, wanderers and poets". As always, your poetry is elegant and each word is just where it belongs....even in the reader's eye. Wonderful! Lydi**

Lovely words. I was especially drawn to these turns of phrase:
my naked frame hidden behind veils of black
I allow my mind to wander, if only for a moment
feeding my ever-increasing hunger for life

This reminds me of the last book Carl Jung ever produced. "Man and His Symbols". Humans are weird. The earth is stranger though.

It's a good read "man and his symbols". It gets a little corny but it was put together well because Jung died right before it was published and normal people finished it off. Jung was a genius but, he was a strange fellow when he wasn't publishing clinical text. Even that s**t was/is weird.

Hello dear Julie. I loved these words.
"I allow my mind to wander, if only for a moment
remembering the consummate host of warriors,
wanderers and poets
feeding my ever-increasing hunger for life
Yet never satisfying"
The above lines. So good. I must read to write and thank you for sharing the amazing poetry.

I did enjoy dear Julie and you are welcome my dear friend.
Julie, your vivid imagination is so thrilling to see brought forth through your poetry. This is a ride that I would love to take with you. To let the top down, your hair down, and your inhibitions.
Enjoy that ride my dear friend, drop by and pick me up on the way.

Huggs, Trace.

Play America and The Eagles as its soundtrack. Even for a Brit this brings it all back. Oh and Steppenwolf. @Get your motor running. Head up on the highway.....' Wonderful.

boy am I happy to see you posting my friend! great new avatar! great hair dahlink! ;) "The sun and The Stallion" ...a Mustang .. wild and sure footed .. a strong survivor .. hard to catch .. your heroine has what it takes tho .. so sexual with creative tension to bust any resistance .. I don't know how you have done it but tho she escapes with her "stallion and the sun" .. she seems so very alone .. it almost makes sense the mustang is the car .. as in the pic you use .. clearly this young woman is hurt
"my naked frame hidden behind veils of black
the skeletal truth staring back" ... seeks respite running wile out there in the desert ... reading makes me desire the life of a cowboy ... a much younger cowboy :))))))))) great to have you back .. hope you will make it a habit again Ms. Jewel of the Cafe' .. peace and love
E.
