Yes, the world still turns and trivial tasks always await to get us back up again :)Thanks for the visit.
The image of the heifer is superb Matt... backsliding is the perfect word to capture the movement!
The trivial tasks can be the hardest to start.
The heifer image represents a sense of slow response and bulky weight - like a visual metaphor of the effort needed in meeting trivial duties! Powerful poem!
mud-soaked joy.... love that phrase... :)
Ooof! I loved this. What a comment on human (bovine) temperament, expressed succinctly with each stanza in perfect balance.
What a delight! I smiled through those last lines. A nice way to enjoy my morning coffee.
A great write!
.. as a backsliding heifer /twitches in mud-soaked joy.. pure genius. Well done...
I love the mud-soaked heifer!!!!
What did I learn here today? Acceptance. Gratitude. Appreciation of the moment. Thank you!
I love the backsliding heifer in mud soaked joy. Well done.
Yes, the world cares little for our seemingly momentous experiences...and moves in its merry way along the primrose path to everlasting bonfire.
Vivid images here! Wonderfully metaphoric.
