To Govern the Night

We rode the night
A fire-shod mare
Under blurring stars
We chased down our dreams.

All seemed lost so many times
But words kept us going
And the Word filled our hearts
And it didn’t hurt to dance now and again.

We rode hard
Down and up the trail
Straining for our destination
Under the palest moon.

What are you thinking?
