In the fields

After John 10:1-18

In the fields green
and full of life, flowered
explosion of grass and clover,
the shepherd walks, saying
little, his presence
sufficient to maintain
calm among the sheep,

roaming, eating, bleating.
He walks slowly,
with purpose, knowing
his work, knowing
his sheep.
He sits upon a large rock,
listening to the prayers,
the prayers of his sheep.
