Bighorn Sheep Dilemma
by DaySounds © 2021

Sun rays a ram bathe,
While, nearby, a ewe glances.

In silence, she ponders,
"Is he the one I've been waiting for?,"
"The limelight is on him,
But he is distracted--
Doesn't even my presence notice."

The ram's horizontal pupil
In his mind
A panoramic view is drawing;
While his head and body
A different direction
Are facing.

Pretending not to,
But looking at her,
The same question
To himself he is asking.

Who will take the initiative?
Who will speak first?
Will silence draw them apart,
With the wrong sheep
Ending mismatched?
