Happy Haiga Day!

I'm sure getting good mileage on this poem I wrote for Heidi Mordhurst's Ch Challenge: it was posted on her site on March 9, I posted it again here on March 13, and now, I've illustrated it! I like the way it came out--bright and happy. The background is a painting by George Ames Aldrich, and comes courtesy The Atheneum. The horse is from a photo I took at The Big E several years ago. I edited out all the fair stuff so that I only had the horse's cute face. Doesn't it look as if he/she's inviting you into the scene? Of course, after two weeks, I see ways I could have written it differently, but, what's done is done.
