Five Cows

Five cows on the bridge watch the traffic
As it stutters on the road below
Dark shapes against the winter sun
Standing where the cold wind blows

Five cows on the bridge watch the traffic
An audience for our tragic play
As we rush to and fro
Missing the slow beat of life around us

    1. So, I wrote this poem in my head while driving to work one day — I had seen five cows on a bridge over the road who were stopped to look at the traffic. Then when I came to post it on this blog, I googled ‘five cows on bridge’, and found the perfect photo! How cool is that?
