I think horses are just about the most beautiful animals on Earth. Can’t begin to guess how many hours I spent copying/drawing horse pictures when I was a kid and mooning over my small collection of Breyer horses. This picture makes me think of:
2. A horse galloping across clouds
3. How devastated I was when they euthanized racehorse?Ruffian when I was 8 or 9 years old
Here’s my poem first draft, conveniently in haiku to fall in with my Poetry Month Haiku-a-Day:>)
heavy hooves pound clouds,
racing for fog-laced finish,
ghost horse?gallops on
–Laura Purdie Salas
