Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides: above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumbered and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages and will lie
Battening upon huge sea-worms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.
"The Kraken" - Alfred Tennyson

The Horse: Friendship without envy, Beauty without vanity, Nobility without conceit, A willing partner, yet no slave.
This mare was born in Nevada the year 1991, adopted and then abandoned to fend for herself. She was found and is now on the road to recovery. Updated: This mare is now up for adoption!

Well, it's a marvelous night for a Moondance
With the stars up above in your eyes
A fantabulous night to make romance
'Neath the cover of October skies
And all the leaves on the trees are falling
To the sound of the breezes that blow
And I'm trying to please to the calling
Of your heart-strings that play soft and low
And all the night's magic seems to whisper and hush
And all the soft moonlight seems to shine in your blush.
~ Van Morrison "Moondance"

"We learned to be patient observers like the owl.
We learned cleverness from the crow,
and courage from the jay,
who will attack an owl ten times its size
to drive it off its territory.
But above all of them ranked the chickadee because
of its indomitable spirit."
~Tom Brown, Jr., The Tracker
