Mustang


The juggernaut of destiny
A mustang
Galloping past
Ghosts-like trees
With protracted branches
Standing idle
Like scarecrows on paddy fields
Wooden edifices
Molting their rustling desire
To embrace
The autumn pastels
When all that was needed was a lasso
Entwined from
Gangly vines of deed
Spiraling up the bough of life
To blend with the torrents of kismet
For man is the master
Of his own destiny
