Forgetting myself

For just one moment,
I forgot myself–
Who I am,
Who I think I am, and
Who I think others think I am.

It was a relief–
To be free of myself, and
All the things associated
With who I think I am.

For one moment, I had the chance
To be something thoughts escape,
Something time doesn’t own,
Something with no need to die.

Latest Comment on Riding Wild Horses

I thought I’d share the latest comment on my newest book, Riding Wild Horses: “Originally I bought your book because I love horses, and my wife and I have supported the protection of the wild horses for years. When I started reading your book, I figured out that not only did you provide insights and advice about the wild horse situation, but you spoke to what wild horses symbolize to horse lovers and everyone else. Keep writing. Love your pithy poems. Sincerely, Len and Wendy” Riding Wild Horses is available on Amazon. com.
