Pegasus

In response to CARPE DIEM HAIKU KAI: Carpe Diem #825 Pegasus

I have 2 favorites to share before my own take on Pegasus: Chèvrefeuille’s beautiful Hippocrene-inspired image and Haiku Plate Special’s charming reminder of the way I and so many others were introduced to Pegasus.

horses galloping through puddles

winged horse
flying through my childhood

Tho childhood fantasies are long gone, I can be good-humored about practical matters.

Pegasus

Ever been shat on
by a bird? Be glad there are
no flying horses.

Perhaps the image credit requested by the Rijksmuseum refers to a likeness of Persephone on the other side of a coin? Perhaps some copy-then-tweak editing did not go far enough? A magic spring with water that ensures complete editing would be a worthy companion to Hippocrene.
