Circular Reasoning

Wind in your mane, insouciant
in perfect rhyming symmetry
hilariously flippant
to your breeze-tossed mane, intransigent
earnest description goodly-meant
resulting in soliloquy
to wind-tangled hair, insouciant
in perfect rhyming symmetry

  10. I'm liking your mane and the wind interplay here. Probably more than I'm reading but I can relate. BTW, my horse, Minnie had a short, cropped mane, starting with being able to treat a fistula she had developed. After healing Dad didn't want to have it grow out.
