My poem, “Horses,” in Acropolis Journal

I’m pleased and honored to have my poem, “Horses” in Acropolis Journal, Issue 6, “Ancient.”

My thanks to Editor Louise Mather and Guest Readers: Letitia Jiju & Matthew M.C. Smith. My poem is paired with a stunning photograph by Sylvia Santiago. I am fascinated by cave paintings and those who painted them.

Merril D. Smith – Horses

“The day we saw the horses,

like apparitions, pale against the rocks,

time froze. . .”
