You use of alliteration complements the tone of peacefulness. It becomes onomatopoetic. The s's effect the silence. It could also be the sound of stress being released with expelling breaths. This poem with invite the reader to find their peaceful spot. Well expressed.

Very beautiful, as is the picture. You are so fortunate to have two wonderful loves in your life, that is aside from your personal loves. Your horses and your writing. Aren't we a lucky breed? We do not just exist we live, and with so many capabilities. Yes, fortunate are our species.

This is a lovely poem that tells of your special place to write and create. You have painted a vivid description of that place. The artwork goes perfectly with your piece, and is absolutely beautiful.

I could sense your contentment as you wrote of this happy place! Love the way the end of each stanza was a variation on the phrase... For me it would be sitting on a rocky shore, gazing out to sea... You've one a great job painting the picture of the barn and involving the senses. Nice job!--Karenina

This work has reached the exceptional level
A very interesting angle on the Happy Place contest - portraying this special space 'the barn', the rhythm of the horses movements bringing 'contentment and peace'-reading it brings peace !

With this writing you bring your reader to the smells and sounds of the barn.
You also bring calm in these words.
I enjoyed this read
Well done
Good luck in the contest.

I think we would all like to walk through a place that is familiar and very salubrious to life's expression, usually dwelling in our childhood somewhere, well done, a beautifully written piece, written in expressive, articulate free verse in stanzas, well done, blessings Roy

I am not surprised that this is your happy place and your writing does justice to it. Enticing natural scents and the rhythmic munching on oats are certainly amongst ingredients for free thought flow.

You've written a marvelous poem for the Happy Place contest.
I suspect many have a similar place, though few would pick a barn,
unless they are horse lovers.
For me, it's water: a stream, a lake, a river, and ocean,
but then I like forests too, and mountains. Perhaps nature is the place.
I like the way your poem is like a free verse, but with a few rhymes.
Nicely done.
Best wishes in the contest.
Robert

Sure does sound peaceful. Lovely descriptive language lets the reader experience the sights and sounds along with you. (although the smells
might be a little to pungent for me):)
Good luck in the contest.
Nancy
