Summary/Abstract: The following article results from the reading of Sebyła’s poems which touch upon the subject of horses or motifs and imageries which refer to that particular sphere. At the same time, the article attempts to transcend the parabolic interpretation in order to revisit and reinterpret the presence of horses in Sebyła’s poetry, including both information regarding the animals themselves as well as their general perception in the public sphere (war, social life, sport). The recurring image of blind horses seems to strangely complement the images of blind people, pointing to the poignancy and importance of metaphors drawn from the sphere of Equus caballus, which serves to express Sebyła’s existential fears.
