Weekly Photo Challenge: Face

WM Donk


“Curiosity is a sign of courage,” my teacher said,

enthusiastic praise for my young gelding, chasing her dog along a fence line.

I’m older now than she was then,

but this visitor’s weathered and wind-burnt face is donkey years older than either of us.

Still I recognize that eye

and the courage required to approach the unfamiliar

with a cynical old heart

that’s not done yet.

(WordPress Photo Challenge is a weekly prompt to share a photo–I enjoy twisting these macro prompts to share our micro life here on the Colorado prairie. My photos are taken with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high tech.)
