Laugh at border collie laying on cusp of ditch,
Body contracted tight, spring like.
Sheep in field at edge near road,
Shepherd stands as a statue.
Dog close by being itself.
Dog's oneness with shepherd and sheep.
Symbiotic beauty observed.
Museum like quality, a glimpse to previous time.
Living history display from biblical times of Jacob and David,
Lone shepherd, lone dog, flock of sheep.
