Other Warriors by Mary Bone

Albert Bierstadt - A Wild Stallion

As free as the wind
a lone stallion gallops
across the prairie.
He stops to listen, ears alert.
Ancestors from another time,
pounding hoof beats
echo across the canyons of time.
Every pant and heartbeat
hammering against the walls
of his chest.
Somewhere other warriors
thrive and he listens
because the only noise is the
breath of the wind,
rustling the leaves across his path.


This poem was published in the July/August issue of Oklahoma Today Magazine
