Photo Challenge: Order

The passing hours of this hot-dry
day spook and buck and bolt, swirling
together and scattering apart in a
a howling dust devil of sharp nickers,
skittering hooves, and manure. Always

manure. I’m only human. I march from
water tank leaks to gate repair, trying
to mitigate the day’s erosion and
prepare for the next thing that will be
a thing I’ve never fixed before. But

under the chaos and distraction and
resistance to the very wind, gravity
is a call to order; a call from the good
earth to my body, soil and water to
muscle and blood. Sister, come sit.

(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. I take these photos with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high-tech.)
