Footprints in the Windsm # 759

Have you ever seen a string of cows
at the waning of the light
headed toward their stations
to be relieved of the milk their chewing
through the day has produced?

How they can remind us of humans
of the workplace queuing up at end of day
headed home to dinner and television
to rest and make ready to do it all another day
nor looking to see beyond the repeating cycles

Maybe imagination will let us see
or some offhand remark show us
—if we choose to look larger and pay attention—
all the people (voices seldom heard too)
live out our lives: of our world, creators

Please pass it on.
