Eight legs plus two

Ambling along through the tree tunnel

With places to go but

Looking around

Smelling the breeze

Reaching for the drive-through grass nibble

Contentedly heading home.


Eight legs plus two

One strolling in between

Flanked by muscled ripples under gleaming coats

Bounding energy and strength

Gracefully contained in calm comfort.

10 legs heading home.
