American Pharoah (misspelled but his recorded, racing name) won the Arkansas Derby; then, the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes--- the Triple Crown! The morning afterwards, Yours Truly, felt the gifted horse had won even more. Above is a poetic treatise on human well-being from, of all places, a racehorse's performance and peaceful, friendly, demeanor. Idealism, social advocacy, philosophical license and more? Perhaps a minor breakthrough for poetry itself! And, likely, the best poem on a thoroughbred ever written!.Here, poetry displays a philosophical and romantic idealism --about America and Western Humanity itself!
All reports about the colt during 4/15 to 7/15, seemingly have attained to more than the Triple Crown. In four sittings, from June 3 to July 4 (16 hrs); fuller, wider and deeper meanings of the American Pharoah phenomenon unfolded to one original, life-long, philosopher-poet-essayist, and lately, songwriter. This thoroughbred has inspired the above refreshened, poetic, vision of human well-being. Authentic visions of wholesome humanity have become scarce these days-- amidst rampant visions of money and power!
