The Moose

Mighty in his fortress

receiving a lukewarm reception

the moose ambles along

searching for an article for his affection

Coming to a meadow

with a blanket of flowers

he lets out a call

been searching for an hour

She appears

warm and calm

blinking her eyes

chewing on a palm

Moving closer

the mating ritual begins

an interesting dance

in perfect rhythm

Call accepted

together in bliss

commitment to each other

sealed with a kiss

Months later

a new life emerged

the family is growing

a welcome addition to the herd

The sun filters

among the flowers and trees

the herd lives in peace

enjoying life in the breeze
