Wild Horses

I am an artist, designer, photographer and writer. See more of my work on cmariearts.


I hear something

Calling out to me

Out into the wild

Setting me free

The rapture

Held within

Stirring feet

I am shaped by

It's very heat

So when the sun

Sets west

I will be gone

I need to go

Finding my home

In the dawn

Scroll to Continue

When the sun rises

In the east

My heart stampedes

Wild horses

Had set me free

Awesome! I love how wild mustang run across the plains. Your poem made me think of galloping horses.

mckbirdbks from Emerald Wells, Just off the crossroads,Texas on January 30, 2012:

Nice imagery. Your spirit was set free with this one.

stessily on January 30, 2012:

Caroline, The beautiful freedom of wild horses is captured wonderfully in your poem. The images of wild horses have captivated me since childhood, and when I think of freedom, of the wind flowing through my hair and running with the wind, I think of wild horses. Your poem brought those images and wishes back to me.

James W. Nelson from eastern North Dakota on January 30, 2012:

Beautiful work, Caroline, and I love horses. Horses, both wild and tame, play a major part in my novel, "The Bellwether."

Ruby Jean Richert from Southern Illinois on January 30, 2012:

The rapture held within stirring feet, beautiful...

Barbara Purvis Hunter from Florida on January 30, 2012:
