No Saddle

gazing at the text
from her lover far away—
a taste of honey
~~ ~~ ~~
stifling afternoon
without the cooling breezes
she was hoping for
~~ ~~ ~~
Sweltering June day—
the old abbot stubs his toe
near the temple gate.
~~ ~~ ~~
nursing home at dusk—
the glint in her eyes dimming
as she sees the end
~~ ~~ ~~
no saddle, no reins
on the untamed horse called death—
her wild ride forward

the cooling conversation
between earth and sky
