Blink! Slow down!
Slam on the brakes!
Deer crossing ahead!


She was absolutely beautiful,
her body sleek and strong
as she leapt across the road
running, turning slightly
to make sure her fawn followed.

Then scurrying to the underbrush,
they settled, invisible to the naked eye,
secure in knowing they were safe, for now,
with water and forage nearby.

The beauty of nature,
Near my own backyard.
