An Athletic Deer

deer in colorado park

Small brown deer

wandering through the park

so athletic

after running in the dark

 

He stops for a moment

searching for a friendly hand

spotting  dropped food

scattered throughout the land

 

Showing much grace

while wiggling his ears

swishing of the tail

as he draws near

 

Photographs are taken

by quiet observers unseen

making his way to the table

a feast to be gleaned

 

Eating a small morsel

a child begins to cry

startled and running

he leaps into the sky

 

Over the fence

beautiful form in his jump

leaping to safety

not even a thump

  1. I had thoughts of posting about a deer as well. I was able to take some video of a white tailed fawn running in a field a few weeks ago and the athletic tag made me think of it too.
