slowly the wind flutters by
an uncluttered mind

Are you sure the cow has an uncluttered mind…I have heard about cow with guns…planning revolution…be careful my friend. 🙂

bwhahahaha that is pretty funny Charles – maybe it’s not the cow with the uncluttered mind (or could be both) 😉

I think cows have uncluttered minds, just full of clear thoughts about grass

I’d like to think so Juliet (and maybe, being a herd animal, a slight feeling of impending doom in the background which they aren’t quite sure of how to interpret 😉 ) – when I wrote the haiku I was referring to me – I had been feeling a bit yuck so sat on the grass near the cows and started to listen to them chew and I felt better in no time.

That’s just an act- they’re fiends, I tell you!

they have a very very very cunning plan I’m sure bluebee 😉 #FiendishBeasties
PS – hope you’re feeling better, Gabe.

Oh, for a mind that uncluttered. Time to listen to the wind. I shall think of cows differently from now on 🙂

I love cows, I love haiku, I (now) love cow ku, so I totally love this! (PS I’d love an uncluttered mind.)

hahahaha thankyou Nigel – I’d also love an uncluttered mind – I wish we had a pause button (and maybe even a reboot button) 😎
