In Parting

Go my friend
Take the green road
Running,
Find the way
To sunlit pastures
Blowing,
Feel the sun
The glowing heat
Warming,
Chase the winds
Its young laughter
Joining,
Touch the heart
Mount of dreamers
Soaring,
Go my friend
Take the green road
Running.

It has been twenty-one years since Paloma took that green road running. She was the first horse that actually belonged to me. We learned to trust each other, to listen and to respond. She taught me to fly. After all these years, a part of me still grieves. Memories of her are still warm and precious. MJG
