Taming Spirited Thoughts

foal and horse

My thoughts are spirited
yearling foals
tossing their heads,
kicking up their heels
cavorting freely
on the plains
of the mind
refusing to be corralled

Holy Spirit and I
work together
gently capturing each one —
leading it to its own
lush, green pasture.
There we calm
and tame it
into a poem,
story, idea,
or perhaps…
even…
an adventure.
