thinking through

 this lady spent two days bellowing 
and part of one night
 i'm sure it had to do with losing her calf
or wanting to be bred
it's all about sex says my friend
there were dozens of these on the roadside
the same places where the snappers might lay in june
 fruit of the land
this wonderful russet stone  
is sharp 
on its edges
 silk
 i've been playing with
a cloud
ephemeral
strong
like families facing loss
~~~
i've been weaving

I often hear the cows bellowing from yonder farms. Its strange cause it sounds like its coming from the forest... is that flint?

V- have to almost agree with Jude - sex, stone, weaving but can we add bread, cheese and red wine? The photos of the silk are so delicate and ethereal. Go well and continue to see the beauty around us. B

Velma said...

Velma I love your playing with a cloud - so perfect - and we too have cows nearby and that's what we're told as well about the bellowing.

I am sorry for your sadness and the losses you have experienced; so tough, but as B says may we still see the beauty that is around us. And Yes white is fine too!
