Today's Gift


Today's gift
was a newborn fawn,
not two feet tall,
nursing its mother
alongside
the road.
                                                 


Be careful,
mother deer,
in this world
of lost habitat,
scarce food
and speeding cars.


Stay safe,
little fawn,
and grow
big
and strong
into
all of your
tomorrows.

  1. It gets harder every day for nature to maintain its balance. I too wish the fawn a chance to grow into all his tomorrows...:)
