Fire Blossom Friday: Being A Deer

Join the creative fun and visit with others at
Not feeling like yourself?
Some one lets a dog in...
I freeze but the dog
Thinks I am only human
And does not smell my fear

Someone mentions food
I look at the solid wood
I stand on 
Seeing nothing to eat

The lead male says,
"Honey, I will cook.
Go relax"
I retreat outside

"I retreat outside" gives me hope that she will escape the wood floors, and find food.

I live in a part of the country where deer are everywhere ... strolling across streets, strolling down the sidewalk in front of my townhome, nibbling in our yards. Some think they are 'pests' .. I have an on-going love affair with them. Love your poem, Gail!!
