Hogan’s Brown Cow

Hogans Brown Cow by Beverly Dyer

13 x 13 in
Tom Hogan’s brown cow
looks over the fence // wondering
with skeptical eyes
whether I am friend or foe;
Slowly chewing on green grass
Ruminating thoughts
randomly run through my head;
Big brown eyes stay fixed
determined to stare me down;
I turn // slowly walk away
Tom Hogan’s brown cow
wonders off to chew her cud;
Summer grass // rich cream.
Poetry flows from my head;
Barbed wire goes on for ever
Today at d’Verse Mish introduced us to artist Beverly Dryer.  She asked us to choose one of her watercolor paintings and write a poem inspired by the painting.  I chose Hogans Brown Cow. The eyes captured my imagination.  Hope you enjoy it. Her painting is used with her permission.

  1. I love your interpretation of Hogan’s Brown Cow. There is something so serene about cows. They just chew their cud and do their thing. Advice we might all consider!!

  2. I always wonder what goes through their heads, how much they are even able to process as they gaze into our souls. I like the moment you’ve created here between man and beast and how they both seem to be pondering life in their own ways.
