The Ghost Horse (A Haiku)

By Joyce Jacobo

[Author’s Note: Based on a legend from my area about a ghostly horse that runs around the area where bandits supposedly hid their ill-gotten gains. Have you heard any tales about ghost horses?]

Spectral horse so swift

you run through the hills at night

over buried gold

      1. Intermittently, and I never came away with real meaning for the figure other than the usually-ominous sort of signaling intended in a story about something else entirely. I’ll give some thought to it. The specific meaning you’ve presented here is new to me and of course prompting of some digging. πŸ’™
