Oh Dear, Deer

the local herd
approximately 6 or 7 deer
have come through this morning
doing their "stay still" poses
And then realizing my movement behind the window
poses no threat
they continue their uprooting, chewing way
nature's stock less full
harbinger of lean times to come
it is a cycle
the young will learn
if they survive
the old
who remember
many seasons past
I watch
curious of how other species
get through their days
do they also imagine
green pastures, full vines
the morning dew fresh
