Pasture Perfect

She just gave birth minutes ago, and licks amniotic fluid
from her newborn’s body.

I walk toward mother and babe, through high pasture grass.
Morning clouds soften the sun and mountains surrounding
San Rafael Valley, near Patagonia AZ.

Mama warns me with her gaze, “Don’t get too close”.

Gently I say to her, “I am a midwife”.

I do believe mama understands. She resumes licking her newborn.
Slowly I move closer to mama cow and baby calf.

Calf soon tries to get up, stumbles, falls, tries again,
stands…… and begins walking.


Newborn walks to mama’s udder and begins nursing
in the beauty of the valley!

  7. 29/01/2012Probablemente sea otra otitis; pinchar la bulla es para que duela menos. La fiebre y el ganglio son normales en una otitis. Al ser la quinta en poco tiempo creo que hay que plantearse seriamente ponerle drenajes (si realmente eran otitis).

  8. Holland America, although not necessarily for teens. Princess would probably be better for them.And it may be too late to book for August. The Alaska cruises fill up fast, due to the short season. Early August – you may already be too late to meet the security clearance requirements.

    Synes du er strÃ¥lende dyktig jeg, frue! Jeg har ikke turt Ã¥ nærme meg hÃ¥ret til Max… den slags overlater jeg til tante Ingvild, tante Elin og frisørene pÃ¥ Vinterbrosenteret. Det de (frisørene) mangler i entusiasme nÃ¥r bittesmÃ¥ kunder dukker opp tar de igjen pÃ¥ festlige frisørstoler formet som racerbiler og masse slikkepinner som deles ut til nyklippede smÃ¥ herremenn.Klem fra Sol

  11. I really like the song but still warrior is my fave…haha.. i’m a B.A.P fangirl… but i could agree with “But if B.A.P continues to release similar title songs in the future, that could pose a problem.” I hope they would do a mature concept and pull of a “Fiction” like Beast did…
