by the time spring arrived reality set in
the king’s inner circle sent away men on horseback
to sow the seeds of forgiveness
it was the first of its kind and unbiased officials say
they are planting courageous ideas
before winter set in the horsemen sought comfort
slightly below the earth’s surface
solving religious conflict through peaceful uprisings
april two thousand seventeen

Oh Damn! We are going to do it all again, aren’t we!
I am afraid so.
Your poetry is SO cool, John. You always give away just enough to make me want to smack you in the face and demand more. 😛
I love the images I get from this:
“the horsemen sought comfort
slightly below the earth’s surface”
thank you, Shawna, and of course there will always be more.
“unbiased officials” lol.
