    Glorious focus on one cloud that may be meandering as much as the rider and the pony beneath it.

    I'm also reminded of this famous haiku:

    moving into the sun
    the pony takes with him
    some mountain shadow

    Jane Reichhold, American Haiku in Four Seasons

    autumn deepens…
    a passenger squirrels away
    his season ticket

    Nifty, thought James!
    __ Here, with your haiku James, you have caused my minimally echoed scribble, an imagined sight of "horse clouds"; thank you! _

    a herd of snow
    in trails across this cold sky
    clouds a-trot

    meandering leaves
    behind the sound of shadows
    autumn loneliness
