The Red Mare
Rain slurries over the pasture
pelting the red horse.
She turns her backside to the wind
braces herself for the duration.
I take refuge in the barn.
The red mare could join me,
the door is open.
I want to offer her my umbrella
hold it over her head.
I could give her my yellow slicker
throw it around her shoulders.
She chooses to stand in the rain.
She accepts the rain.
