It's Sunday Muse #147, and we're inspired by the photograph of the Indigo Sky Mares by Lauren Burch.
They’ve long been my friends, the indigo mares, since my mother told
me of their power.. On dark, stormy nights I leap astride, grasping their
flowing golden mane as we streak through the starlight on the nimbus
highway, dodging lightning bolts, asteroids and all manner of space
junk, hoofbeats drowning the sound of thunder. I fall asleep cradling their
warm flanks and wake to morning light, refreshed and filled with indigo memories.
The storm will have passed, and I will be safe and sound....just as mother said.
