Ode to my beloved steed who will celebrate her 31st birthday June 15, 2017.
Impatient hooves stamp
Then all is quiet.
Tension builds.
Muscles tighten.

Then a bell sounds
And silence is broken.
Thunder erupts.
Sparks fly.

Straining muscles propel.
Ever forward bodies move.
Head to head.
Eye to eye.

Now, the fastest of all
Leaps ahead of the other.
Poles flash by.
Hooves fly.

The finish line passes.
The winner prances.
Eager is she.
Happy and free.

Red coat shines in the sun.
Her name equals her spirit.
Flash is the name.
Running is the game.
