We call him Cowboy

I saw a painting of a lone cowboy riding into a storm and tried to recreate it with words.

We call him Cowboy

What makes a man
ride into a wind whipped, gray-green storm cloud,
forsaking the comfort of coffee
to search for a stray?

Who, in their right mind,
takes on lightening streaked uncertainty
to help some ungrateful critter?

We call him “Cowboy”.

Jesus called him a “Good Shepherd”.
