Straight Outta the Black

“Dreaming in Colors”

He’s comin’ a running

Straight outta the black

As the dark starts to fade

Into gray as colors invade

He’s painting this world

While dreaming in colors

Happy Haiku Friday!



Deep inside the black
The colors hide from our sight
White shatters the dark

A bright fiery yellow tail and mane billow in the wind from this black beauty, sending dancing shadows into the black as he prances through the cold dark of January Nights!  Enjoy! ~M
