Haiku: A Kind of Beauty

Every morning, well before 7 a.m., the mutton head and I go down to the field for her morning exercise. Often, I get to witness the daily struggle as morning wrests control from the night. This morning was again one of those. Now if only I could remember to bring my camera along. Please, see all kinds of beauty at One Deep Breath.

Night fights to survive
against an onslaught of pink.
Morning wins again.
