A Trail of Thoughts

A Sweep of Sheep

For a brief moment,

as they charge up the slope,

they mime

a new collective noun.

 

In the field beyond they slow

into a familiar formation –

languid, nibbling.

I stare at them

long and hard,

but can’t for the life of me

see beyond a well-worn f-word.

 

Familiarity

Leaves the

Observer

Caught in the already

Known

Old bones creak along the trail. Words often elude me at my desk. I can't go on. I'll go on.
