Deer Vigil

Deer Vigil

A friend in Colorado snapped this picture and posted it on Facebook. I thought it needed a poem.

Deer keep careful watch
across the flocked landscape
wary of my slightest movement
signaling a threat to their well-being.

While all around
pristine snow blankets the area
and a pine tree
they have chosen to nest under
while winter holds this moment
in breathless suspension.
