My Totem, a poem by Margaret Bednar

My Totem

We are riders
on the storm of life,
paths crossing, pausing
to bask in china blue sky's
gentle breath.

For but a moment
you lean into me, content,
heartbeats shared.

is often considered

but your spirit,
gentled, is truly
a powerful guardian.

For a poetry challenge I was to use a title of one of Jim Morrison's songs to use in a poem.  I selected "Riders on the Storm".

I don't own Sebastian anymore, I only have one horse, Oberon.  But I get to see Sebastian all the time as we are at the same barn.
