red impression
By Omar Azam

Horse-brown red
riding on tile.

She is beauty
but all I see is

a mane 
tossing bobbing

Free white open

A bosom she has no capability of

Thread of an image
is what I soak but

All I see is a

Horse red
riding upon the tile.

Grown not yet
Not so far in the head yet

as she sinks to her knees
Red wild open free.
