Giddy Up

Hope spurs the mare
to ignore her roiling belly
and move forward.
Dreams are
the kaleidoscope 
of possibilities
that cling
to the saddle.

My hope
is to always mount up.
My dream 
is to fly the colors

I'm impressed with how you've taken what I would have ignored as a cliche, not very exciting prompt (hopes and dreams) and elevated it into the realm of the poetic with this unexpected and lovely picture. It's short and sweet, and the title is perfect. Very nice work.
