galloping with the wind

brushing the wind, they gallop
leaving everything behind
even whirlwinds can't compete
so fast that they pass in a moment
you can only touch them fleetingly
their massive size can beat you down
if only you let yourself lead by them

"with your calm exterior, you can win
over thoughts which gallop like horses
in your mind, tightly reining them in"

I like your comparison of thoughts to wild horses - unusual! Nicely done!

You bring out the rawness of thought here.

The biggest, most powerful, dangerous and exciting thing in life - is thought.

Whoa, this puts a rein of chaos for a moment anyway. Nice work.

Is reining thoughts in a good idea?

Great imagery! Can we control our wild thoughts when we are calm on the outside...or by forcing ourselves to be calm and in self-control on the outside, it spurs on and give reign to our galloping and out of control though patterns?

I wrote three poems for the TOP prompt: Dogs of War, Two Pets and My Dog Tom

a frequent battle ,reigning in
the "galloping mind", at least for me, anyway.

Great work Tami, I just love your pulsating images. They race more quickly then mans mind. What insight into the essence of a dog. Wonderful work.

love you, Melanie
