Bookend Day

                      Bookend Day

A bookend day
In light of full Lenten moon
Feeding horses as they neigh
Anxious for flakes of hay

Internal contentment washes over
Enjoying rushed moments before leave for work
Grounds the day in the brush of Morning's mane
In dogs pressing against me for one last rub

Repairing fence in dwindling light
Sky painted soft pinkish red
Even in midst of working
Still time to be captured by western horizon

Stillness in transition space
Moments of dawn and dusk
A beauty that captures soul
If dwell in the moment of a bookend day
