The horse and the rider


What’s within, what’s beneath the horse’s hooves?

How to read the twitch of his eyes, the tremor,

the tremble, the pause?

The rider mounted, a little nervous.

The rider feels her horse’s emotion,

the horse feels his rider’s emotion.

They connect with each other’s heart,

soul, and inner core.

They have embraced in action

the meaning of presence and interchange,

their spirit flowed into one another,

each becoming the other,

their individual definition

melting away.

They feel safe.

He, the horse; the horse, she

fused into One.

Where is being, the state of seeing?

…it galloped into infinity.
