On the road,

Sitting in traffic

Behind a trailer

Containing a small Florida cracker steer

standing, gazing about, alert and relaxed…

We seemed to catch each other’s eye…

Where are you going this solstice night?

He moved aside,

Revealing a smaller young donkey.

Ah, I said…

You, like I am, a minister

And we are both scheduled for services.


The moon is full,

The night is long,

And hope is renewed in the coming dawn.
