Five Mule Deer

Five mule deer

Five mule deer
poised and alert
all but hidden behind the blind
heads floating above
a smoke grey frenzy of brush.

Shining black pairs of eyes
intently gazing toward the road
something moving, drawing closer.

Tall charcoal sets of ears
pricked all the way up
acoustics finely tuned
to foreign footfalls crunch.

Small grey deer
utterly present
ready to bolt.

What does flow look like ?
Five deer
tracking the human
without a sound.

Mule Deer
