WILD BRUMBIES RUN

a poem by Lee Emmett, Australia - poetry writer, author, poet

wild brumbies run
rumbling hooves rush
through trees and brush
manes glow in sun

galloping, racing
majestic horses
on high-country courses
leaders out-pacing

nostrils are flaring
steaming out-breath
defying death
heart-spirit baring

sweat pours off flanks
taut muscles ripple
leaf-shadows' stipple
plunge river-banks

exhaustion depletes
graze, mild and content
all passion spent
placid day greets
