Folktober Challenge, Day 23

Inspired by all three images

How We See Them

Our basest natures conjure up
the one-legged imps, foul-smelling
creatures of the night,
and grief-stricken women in white,
who tend the ill with guilt-tinged care–
but the white-maned waves gallop
across the world, into the air, magnificent,
the swiftest creatures,
nature and imagination, alive.

For Paul Brookes’ Folktober Challenge. You can see the images and read the responses here.
