The dream is gone, but displayed on the marquee of my sleep-memory are three words: ICE COW PANCAKE. There are no lines drawn between these disconnected dots, only the three breadcrumbs.

Google tries (cow pancake, pancake bunny), but offers no ah-ha; amazingly, cowWikipedia, knower of all things, doesn’t even show up on the first search page.

I suppose I’ll have to craft the Wikipedia entry myself, and begin watching the little movie that projects in my mind: ice-skating cows on a pancake lake, cow-shaped icebergs in pancake parkas, pancake cows grazing on an icy meadow….Um, I better go now.

Jennifer Bullis, a friend and a remarkable poet, blogs occasionally about “Poetry at the Intersection of Mythology and Hiking.” She has a book forthcoming and introduces it, as well as some other admired writers, in her most recent post. Have a look…and watch for her book.

cow pathThe Holsteins browse the hillside, making butter. California rainfall is far below normal, but the grass is still thick and green beneath their feet. The cows are wide and their movements seem random, but their route back to milking is a surprisingly narrow, even dainty, cow path, a contour line of bare soil along the slope, where they walk, one after the other, bellies swaying, toward the barn.
