A Blessing

Rating: 3.7

Just off the highway to Rochester, Minnesota,
Twilight bounds softly forth on the grass.
And the eyes of those two Indian ponies
Darken with kindness.
They have come gladly out of the willows
To welcome my friend and me.
We step over the barbed wire into the pasture
Where they have been grazing all day, alone.
They ripple tensely, they can hardly contain their happiness
That we have come.

They bow shyly as wet swans. They love each other.

What a killer of a last line sometimes on does feel like this breaking out into blossom beautifully penned some could learn, including me, from this. Simple can be extremely complicated.10+++++

I've been ambivalent about nature poems. This one has made me a fan. Such vivid imagery. What a communion with our other animal friends. And the ending is to die for. Definitely worthy of Poem Of The Day. Congratulations!

There is a blessing inherent in God's creatures when we really reach out and touch them with our soul
