Photo Challenge: Shine

wm-donkey-goat-2
Decades of hard-scrap survival,
a jumble of danger and chance,
left only the essentials;
ancestral intelligence
and long-ear mischief
and eyes that shine
as deep and whole as
the prairie night sky.

She hears the stars flicker back
an eternity away-
Never Quit.
Never Quit.

    “she hears the stars flicker back”, she hears, she is a receiver for the energy of knowing, the energy we can access if we too are open to it and if WE never quit.
    I loved this post Anna. Thank-you.

    Something so mesmerizing about a donkey’s gaze. Sometimes a twinkle of humor, sometimes a question and sometimes so somber it feels like they can see what you don’t even know about yourself.
