Horse of the dawn …


From out of the darkness you galloped ..

horse of the dawn;

passing the moon and morning star,

black mane gleaming,

black banner of your tail streaming.


black as the night,

invisible as dreaming –

on silent hooves you flew

bringing this fable of the day’s sunrise

in the silver echoes that illuminate

your sable eyes …

      Good morning, Shermeen .. How nice to see you 🙂

      Thank you very much .. I’m delighted you like the photo .. he is over twenty years old and, as you see, still has a great love for life although he is retired from three-day eventing.
      He was excited to see someone so early in the morning and galloped literally ‘ out of the darkness’.

      Have a lovely day.
