At the Speed of Life

when life runs through you
with the pace of a heavy wind,

the goldenrod and cattails ignite for just long enough
and a horse stands in front of you unmoving beneath the cottonwood tree,
a young steer at her feet

kicking at her fetlocks
and staring into the dying sun,

reminding you to stop and see.
