Photo Challenge: H2O


A thread flows affirming life
with a humble reminder we’re
only nests made of frail twigs,
stray hairs, a cooled teardrop.

It’s the spirit given our daily
chores, caring for old dogs
and ducks beyond laying,
that mend each one to whole.

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo–I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.)


This blog is free, and it always will be. Free to read, but also free of ads because I turn away sponsorships and pay to keep ads off my site. I like to read a clean page and think you do too. If you appreciate the work I do, or if your horse does, consider making a donation.

  2. For some reason years went by without me appreciating filling a trough. Recently I’ve found it to be my favorite outdoor task. The way the sparkling clean water swirls and reflects and the way the animals come over to appreciate it even before it’s full (and chew on the hose), the time it takes that makes me pause and look around. Tonight I was doing something else so I just left the hose in there and the moment it was full I regretted not standing there enjoying it.

    Now that it’s cool out, my animals have taught me to bring them hot water every day to drink. Bath-water hot. They love it – check it out:
