Equine Lifeline

My mind, like a room full of mechanical toys

with no off switch, is soothed in a second by

the sight of evening sun on dappled flanks.

My heart, that continues to run marathons

long after crossing the finish line, is quietened by

the rhythm of munched hay on a winter's night.

My veins that are chocked with caffeine

lying thick in the blood, are freed by

a whicker of recognition at known footsteps.

On days such as these in my workplace

when everything drives me insane,

I reach for my own equine lifeline

and find inner calm once again.
