Kicking Up Stones

The walk down freshly gravel road
kicking up stones seeing how far they roll.
Note a huge ox cart pulling heavy load
of dried kindling and dark black coal.

The ox cart struggles over new laid stone
with its immensely oversized cart lade.
Oxen soon tire as they heave and moan
kicking up stones on the downgrade.

    Caryl, I see the "ox cart" as a metaphor for mankind. So many people carry heavy burdens. Well done. Congratulations on your success in Rick's contest! Love, Carolyn
