For Aafke, and Horse Lovers All

  For Aafke, and Horse Lovers All


Swaying, rhythmic roll


Heaven in green, brown and blue


A toss and a snort



About Marahm

At first glance, I may appear to be a middle-aged American woman with kids, grandkids, retired from a job in a hospital, gratefully relieved from the responsibilities that come with all of that. Behind the image, which is true enough, I am fairly unhinged from much of American mainstream living, having spent twelve years in Saudi Arabia, years that sprung me from societal and familial impositions, and narrow bands of truth. I have learned to embrace my identity as a seeker, an artist, and a writer. I study Arabic and Italian language, because I love them, and I love their people. I still dream of spending more time in the Middle East and Italy, though the dreaming now seems more real than the possibilities. I am a photographer. I write, and sometimes publish, flash memoir, and now a blog or two.

    Beautiful Haiku. Is that yours?

    Thank you, Shahrzad. Yes, it’s mine, inspired by Aafke’s post Heaven.

    I’m glad you are pleased, Aafke. I had a lot of fun with this poem, turning around in my mind
