Photo Challenge: Order

The hours of the day
spook and buck and bolt,
swirling together and scattering
apart in a dust devil of nickers,
skittering hooves, and manure. 

I'm only human. I stumble from
water tank scum to fence repair,
trying to mitigate the day's erosion 
and prepare for the next thing that
will be a thing I've never seen before.

But under the chaos and distraction
and resistance, gravity is a persistant 
call to order; to earth with each revolution
of the sun; this circle dance of life. 
Complacent hours were never meant 
to be confused with love or peace.

(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. I take these photos with my phone, on my farm. No psych, definitely not high-tech.)
