Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

She Rides

She heard the hoof beats and she thought of stripes
Imagination conjured up the rare
For all her life she was one of those types
Accomplished what the others did not dare

So with proud peacock flumes tucked in her hair
She rides a zebra through the azure night
She knows that life is more than black and white.

Lovely cadence here, LM--it *is* a bit difficult to get into, I think, because it's a very old form, but like all old forms, it really adds something to what is said. This ends up quite simple but sleek and satisfying, especially the ending.

When you hear hoofbeats....think zebras! Life could never be just black and white for you, LM. You are just too colorful.
