Horseshoe - Poem by nimal dunuhinga

Maya, the lovelorn lass in the stable who spends the whole life
with a hobble horse as a hobby until she became a hoary woman.
One day the stallion said goodbye to her.
But still she hears its sorrowful neigh.
The cruel life hoaxed up to her death bed.
Now she rest in peace behind the stable in the horse's grave.

The Blacksmith's beautiful daughter who carries a horseshoe at all.
The teacher questioned her in the Sunday school.
'Where do you come from Maya? '
'I am staying behind the horsewoman's graveyard' She replied.

    Something tells me your blacksmith may have comforted poor Maya when the stallion said goodbye. His daughter's name is hardly coincidental, it seems to me. An intriguing tale about love and luck (or the lack of it) . Clever poem. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ (Report)Reply
