Like a mirrored reflection
they stand face-to-face
and my eyes see sublime symmetry

a beauteous moment reveals itself
as the yearlings stare at one another
sister and brother

I see in them cherished memories
of a precious heritage, antiquities,
the famous Lipizzaners of Vienna,
dancing in the courtyard of royalty.
~Passage, et le pirouette~
Mature white horses dancing elegantly.

But as youngsters dressed in browns and beige
they frolic and play all day,
strengthening sinews, muscles and bones
with which to some day carry a rider
into an arena, to dance and sway
The Spanish Riding School way.
But for today, they play
as carefree yearlings
frolicking face-to-face,
reflecting sublime
equine symmetry.

And these eyes see
poetry
in motion.

And they are such beautiful creatures!
This is so lovely Kacy..
Indeed poetry in motion.
Hugs~Nancy

In the midst of winter,
I found there lives within me..
An invincible summer.

What a beautiful way to describe them.

poetry in motion . . .

And you sent me on a search in Vienna.

*grin*

I miss that, there used to be a place where people would keep their horses,
land my sister used to own and no longer does and we used to visit them.

When I was little, my Dad owned horses too.  
Used to go up to my uncle's farm.

Thank you for making me remember that.

Had the wonderful opportunity to see these fine horses not so very long ago.  Heard of their history, knew a lot of it from, yes, Mr. Disney...and in my next life...

well, you know.

Oh my gosh this is an absolutly correct way to describe those gorgous animals. I used to have an Arab Mare and I miss her so much. She passed a couple years ago and I always think about our rides when I get stressed by my little angels (Argh). I wish someday to get to see an Andelusian in person maybe even get to ride.My dream job was a vet. of the equine stature. But anyway thank you so much for making me remeber my girl!!!

Sorry its so long.
Danie
P.S. It absolutely hit the solar plexus!!
