    Dark brown hair
    Light brown mane
    Lying peacefully in a field of lupins
    Not sleeping
    But not awake
    Just daydreaming beautifully.
    Even with her legs bundled up beneath her
    She still looks graceful.
    The grass cushioning her elegant body
    While the sun and flowers enhance her beauty.

      So you have a horse do you? I took a quick look because I used to be a stablehand for racing horses, so I appreciate them for the beautiful creatures they are.

    I do feel you could perhaps elaborate a bit more. It was nice and simple but I could feel that maybe you wanted to go into more description. Just a feeling, nothing more.

    You have a visual element here. But how about the other four senses? Do you see what I mean?

    I hope this helps. I wrote a poem once about horses mating - yes I know, weird subject matter, but it's just one of those things you see, and go, whoa, that's something you won't forget. I don't really like it, but I think it captures something. Tell me what you think...

    'Primitive' 11/06/05

    A mare rolls in the hay,
    eyes glazed, waiting for the
    stallion to reciprocate.

    A soft whinny, a fetlock
    raised ever so slightly, it is
    a ritual of communication.

    They join, they consummate,
    it is a wild, primitive instinct,
    it is a need they have to fill.

    Teeth bared, tails slashing
    through the pungent summer air,
    the heat is in that moment.

    ***

    I didn't go into the five senses here. Only the smell the visuals, and of sound. That is why I didn't like it that much - it was too simple for me. But it is something...

    Well, catcha later

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
