Too stunning

too stunning
for a simple pasture
the horns

of these longhorn cattle
curve up into the sky

at a nearby ranch















Fine creatures, especially up close. I hate to reflect upon their fate.

  1. They are stunning creatures. Fortunately, they probably don't reflect on their fate--that function is reserved for the poet who, thank goodness, notices the stunning details that others miss. And your photo complements your poem so perfectly.

  4. Stunning, indeed ! Are they every penned up? I would think they would gouge each other in a pen.
