What Was Said (Day 17, NaPoWriMo 2013)

What Was Said
By Hannah Six

What the wheat said--
leaning and nodding
over the fence,
old women, gossiping
amongst themselves--

the foal heard,
gentle hissing, rushing
over pricked ears,
tickling that tender
velvety nose

until, mare nudging,
he rose from the ground
on tremulous chestnut legs
and blinked

not so much at what
was being said,
but at the mere fact
of its being said
at all.
