Photo Challenge: Satisfaction

The sun leaves just the sky behind,
a watery arch over the prairie,
and my feet cling to the ground 
unwilling to let loose of this day 
for its beauty and possibility

and loss. There is always loss.
In the moment of light remaining 
just a pause to ask my jaw to 
soften; to be glad of the sadness
that marks this day worthy of memory,

giving dimension to silhouettes
and music to the moments that grow
special in hindsight. Moments that
lift my stride again, fixed to a
simple wealth of earth and sky.

(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.)
