May 6 [perhaps I should write earlier in the day]

sleep is like the water hole
the animals gather round
their spread-out journeys
drawn together

activities are disparate
galloping, grazing
but at the close of day
they rest as one.

Oh, I know! I'm always writing late at night! but . . . well, that's when the best ideas seem to come, or perhaps when it's easier not to "try" to write, if you know what I mean.

I love the water hole analogy and it helps me picture your metaphor.
