Release the Bit

A Rondeau Redoublé

~~~
An evolved perception, distilled and refined
a horse’s gift of free-willed insight
releases now this bit of life designed
to insist another God lead to sun’s light.

Petrified bone clenched this belief-bit tight.
A forgotten contract, long ago signed
agreed another Redeemer wielded the might.
An evolved perception, distilled and refined –

sees accepting a bit, even from the upright,
subjects the self to another’s rein, misaligned
power and movement detracts from delight –
a horse’s gift of free-willed insight.

This new thought and the change it incites
hails now, powering steps on days that seem blind.
The essential self, all-knowing and light
releases now this bit of life designed

to subjugate one’s knowing in darkened blight
to be ridden by the God of a Cross mind
in exchange for the right
to insist not-me-but-you-God in the role of Knight.

Set down this equine bit, this idea of quite
a god to blame, a god who shamed and opined,
his reins directing into night after night.
Acknowledge your essential self, the Creator.  Align
an evolved perception.
