Haiku 120720-1401: Cows

As moist wind lifts the
fog that cascades over the
ridge, cows walk and graze.

There is something in the spare, lonely simplicity of the scene that gives my heart a jolt of painful melancholy joy.
I am back from three weeks in California. I have much to catch up with on many fronts.

This photo was taken (by me) on my way north to Eureka from San Francisco.

Great photograph Mary, to me it symbolizes that life continues no matter what is happening around us and that there are those who don't worry about the future because they live in the NOW!.

Thanks, John! :-D

It was so beautiful there, so striking.

It was easier for ME to be in the moment when surrounded by such unusual (for me) beauty.
