Horse Prayers

Poems from the Prairie

by Anna Blake

Book Image Not Available
Overview
Horse Prayers, Poems from the Prairie, is a collection of poetry from a small farm on the Colorado prairie; tiny stories in simple words, praise for the beautiful fragile land, and love poems to horses. This is a 106-page book of poetry and full-color photography, a softcover mini-coffee table book. Some heartfelt, some humorous, these poems are a howl to the prairie wind. I'm a woman on a farm, wonderstruck by this simple life with its plain beauty; the comfort of daily chores and bittersweet sunsets. Even my words can't look away. And the horses. This gray mare isn't over that girlish phase. None of us are, so I write love poems to horses, putting words to this equine passion that powers a central part of our lives. What is it that pulls us so fiercely to horses? Horse Prayers is verse but this love affair with poems doesn't threaten my long-term relationship with writing non-fiction. It's more like an inky ménage à trois. Wish We felt them close before we had skin; from an infinite prairie the vibration began. A slow rolling nicker rumbled, more felt than heard. Horses called to us, before we were born, so we would remember their warm breath when we first saw fairy-tale images in children's books. We were theirs long before we called them our own.
