On The Move

Filed under: Poetry — migueltio @ 8:26 am

An early spring dusk
with snows receding.

some wet some frozen
give way to an
evening’s quiet sky.

Taleja the fawn
Talajera her mother
arrive to feed in silence on
late day birdseed having fallen
from scratches of earlier blue jays.

Taleja is injured
Talajera concerned
as darkness encloses
increasing the possibility
of other predators as hungry
as they.

At the base of a tall pine
Taleja takes shelter
Talajera takes guard
both taking rest
but still taking notice
as darkness deepens
they rest to heal
they rest to restore
in the hidden of night
they rise
to journey more.

  1. Hope Taleja will get healed real soon!
