Barking at the Cow--Belated

NAPOWRIMO Day 14, Belated

I decided I'd try writing a tanka today; I don't think I've written one before, and if I have, it was a very long time ago. The poor old doggie supplied the inspiration for this one. She gets awfully scared by the nieghbor's cows when she goes out to take a pee...*smile*

Barking at the cow,
the old house dog shakes with fear.
The cow munches grass;
chews slow and calm, for it knows
fear can’t make the unknown known.
