ARTSPEAK! Poem #26 "Sky, with Horses"

Hello, and welcome to day #26 of ARTSPEAK!, my Poem-a-Day Project for National Poetry Month 2015, in which I am writing from images found in the online collections of the National Gallery of Art and focusing on dialogue, conversations, what does the piece say? 

Today's piece is "Horses in a Meadow" by Edgar Degas.

So, I love horses. Love them. So I was drawn to this piece right away! don't you love how these two are such close friends? But I didn't know what fresh and original I could say about friendship, so I searched the piece for some other way in... and landed on the sky!

  4. You have given us the silken fluidness of horses on the run in a new way & "galloping like clouds" is exquisite. Fabulous poem.
