Horse life in 17 syllables.
Horse Nation reader Sharon Strong Carmichael sent us this lovely haiku, inspired by wild horses. Sharon is a poet/artist who plans to write a book for elementary children. Having never written a haiku, she wanted to engage in this mind-stretching activity. Take it away, Sharon!
Wild horse running free
Must not cage, must not contain
Heaven is its soul.
