AROS#5: Winter Goats

Winter Goats
These goats reach forward like refugees
a lip further than the rest will gain a treat
of greens or licorice, or something wonderful.
They know it will.
They pray on dirty knees
in the warm straw, between meals and loving touches;
endless days of winter
boxcarred mothers
hungry for green spring.


  1. Your imagery is enough to break a goat borrowers heart........
    "they pray on dirty knees" beautiful............

    (happy coincidence....look at the goat from
    my day 7 could be the same goat! ;)

  2. Wow, you're not kidding! That goat looks just like the Toggenberg I photographed. They're such curious girls.
