The Equine Art of Kim McElroy

September Sleep


I sit beside you as you lay sleeping.  All of your potential fire banked as glowing embers.  You nicker in your dreams, tiny muscles quiver around your nostrils.
 
 I look at your immense body.  So strange to see it in repose. 
Wrinkled skin where bent joints rest.

 What do you dream in that subterranean world?  Do you know that I sit here quietly reverent?  Such a miracle to observe you so closely while you are away in another realm

My love for you brings bright tears to my eyes.
