GRAZING AND CUD

 

20151107-IMG_5268

 

The old cows know
grazing and cud,
how to a hold a thought

in the shade, how to
let it linger and settle
beneath certain trees,

earth stirred into beds
of moldy leaves.
The scent left

floats to revisit
when grazing’s done.
No secret place,

no special remedy
but time—time
among the grasses.
