LJI Minor+ 4: The Pony

This is my entry for week four of LJ Idol Minor+, with the topic "Happy." You can read the rest of the entries here:

The Pony

One-handed, she leads you
across the twilit loam,
matching your loose gait.
You are gray as doves with
a mane of dried grass. She
is milk and treebark. Later
she will brush burrs
and pollen from your
flax; feed you grained
goodness and, sometimes
sing a lullaby. Though
you would call it a sweet
neighing, melodic
whinny calling you
to sleep's fields.
