The driveway splits
the field in two.
On the right,
red and white cows
trot and bellow
after new calves.
On the left,
a hawk darts
away from a
war party of robins.
It carries 
a large rabbit
in its claws,
struggling to keep
its hold.
I am carefully 
edging this path
between new creation
and total destruction.
