Blue rider
Wassily Kandinsky-1903

Cloaked in blue
he rides the legendary
white horse under
protection of moon,
knowing myths of magic
about the horse are true.
Heads for heart
of the forest, seeking
a spot where they could
both be free from evil.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

  1. The perfect poem for that painting.


  2. I love this painting – it does have a desperate feel about it – or at least “make haste” impression about it.
