On a dark & stormy night,
ghosts and ghouls are in plain sight --
especially a horse of white!

I researched this and found: In some cultures, white horses stand for the balance of wisdom and power. In others, like Christianity, the white horse is a symbol of death.


  1. They all fit so well .. your floating lady, the masks and your story!

  2. Delightfully creepy, CC, I think it's the tilted, floating lady...very nice! Btw, my daughters used to do something (lick their knuckle, slap their sister, something like that)when they saw a white horse because it was supposed to bring them good luck. Or so said their North Dakota grandma...

    1. Yes, that is correct. Here is another "swiped" definition: Depending on the culture, white horses symbolize purity, heroism or death. White is the rarest color of horse, and white horses have been associated with nobility in chivalry, with the sun in Greek mythology and with the end of the world in Christianity.

  3. Never heard about the meaning of white horses in Christianity - very interesting! And a well fitting collage to the theme, Angie!
