wary

bison-56610_640

horned bison female
lives with my neighbors

at the gate. sign—
warning, buffalo

brought here as injured infant
she bonded with husband

after collecting eggs
wife won’t leave chicken run
without first checking
the gal’s position

we step past hens
look at her great swift body
pulling in October’s sun
“she is far enough away,
I don’t worry about her there”

the gal gazes back
eyes calm, clear

so obvious she knows
that at least within this yard
her power trumps ours

Animals constantly astonish me and I want to see them thrive. That’s why I consider this site  an important one: www.geoengineeringwatch.org.
