Come Hoof Or High Water

On this day
I'm half way there

on a journey
not unlike
Noha's Ark

Taken aboard
when flood waters rose

not two by two
all in one
to ride the tide
till land see ho
from mountain top
not up or over
but down from

Contemplation
process
of thought
not complete
but better than
where I was

Some steps taken
still spongy
but in time
solid ground
will firm under foot
and the dogs will stop barking

but dogs are not
beast of burden
brought

more stubborn
mulish but wiser

You may feel like an ass at times for trying
giving it all you got
and things still don't turn out quite

but better than

forever being the proverbial donkey
encircling oneself with tail and tack in hand
for not

In this given

words for
thought
