Deer Diary.


Deer Diary.


5:45 a.m.
as herds of deer
stand on berms
of a mountain road's
sharp curves.

I hum a
favorite tune
I used to know
I'm pretty sure
my memory
says it goes....
"Doe near me,
Fawn so,
lovely Doe!"

The buck
stops here.
I pass him by
r  e  a  l    s  l  o  w,
Mother nature's
morning show.

Then spend
some time
these shy beasts,
who in tall grass
on both sides
share a feast.

They gaze at me
with wonder,
all seem tame
as I look back
upon them

in this wild game.

My van does not
instill fear
of attack,
they study me
with raised ears
then turn back.

to chewing grass
while I digest my share,
of fate that offers me 
this glimpse of
beauty  oh, so rare.

touched by
a peaceful calm

that in this place
two species share.

Then in a
shift of gears
I edge away,
from all my eyes
held deer
on that fawn day.
