A Cowboy


My own sketch of soft pastel on an A4 dark sketching paper
I tried to catch up with some sketching these few days. I did  a colorful bird and a stalk of aloe vera. They remained unfinished. Hurriedly I did this black and white as an alternative.

Ruggedly handsome

Hat slung to the back
Entered the saloon,‘give me..…
The crowd shuddered..…’milk!..’

Submitted for Haiku Heights # 88 (prompt of own choice)
