Horse Talk – NaPoWriMo 2017, Day eighteen – prompt: neoglogism/s

Horses out H.B. Memorial Lib. July 2014

Alert Ponies outside the city library. Ears raised like this indicate their alertness.

Horse Talk,

.

The voice raises and lowers;

depends on you

if you are attempting

to sound like a horse.

.

Hyyyrrrmmm, the sound

of a horse.  Therefore,

this is becoming a hymn

to a horse.

.

Hyyyrrrmmm! I am here

and I am happy to see you;

his head raised. Can you

read the language of ponies?

.

All horse snorts, sighs, and grunts

meanings to both horse and human.

.

But of course, they communicate

in many ways useful to such beautiful

creatures; hyyyrrrmmm.

.

They exude boredom by showing

one ear pointing forward and

the other pointing back.

.

All horse snorts, sighs, and grunts

meanings to both horse and human.

.

Watch those ears if they are stiff

and pointing forward. This indicates

your pony is alert. Not, in these moments,

his singsingsing hyyyrrrmmm.

.

All horse snorts, sighs, and grunts

meanngs to both horse and human.

.

Now, should his ears lie flat to his skull,

he is transmitting his profound displeasure.

.

Hyyyrrrmmm; his very best horse voice,

his stylish means of report. I am here,

I am a horse and I’m happy to see you.

Hyyyrrrmmm.

And now for our (optional) prompt. Today, I challenge you to write a poem that incorporates neologisms. What’s that? Well, it’s a made-up word!
