I came upon a group of calves as I was heading to a meeting. The sun had just peaked above the horizon and all I could see from my vehicle were the tops of a bunch of different colored heads and ears protruding above the prairie grass. I had a few extra minutes so I parked about a block away and walked to the fence to get a better look. I discovered a group of calves laying in a field of tall grass next to a four lane road merely fifty feet away. Only one in the entire group was curious enough to stand and get a better look at me. It was at this moment that I became the spectacle. In addition to seeing the calves this particular morning, I passed an idyllic scene which could have been found in a beautifully illustrated children’s book. The brilliant green pasture, the placid pond, the perfectly placed trees and shrubs provided a canvas for these two geldings. These horses are always together which pleasantly fits this calm image of visual poetry. I tried to soak up the serenity for a few minutes before I had to move on.
