Whither shall I go from thy spirit? Or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
Psalms 139:7


Should he stay
Or should he flee?
He could not see
Any other way
Except to run
With swift feet...

If shot by a hunter,
Was to gain his meat..
This deer youngster
When hearing clicks..
Not from a gun
But from a camera...
Decided to run...
You'll have conflicts
Mixed with good luck
Wherever you go
Oh handsome buck
Just keep thy stamina
Throughout winters snow..

Poetry by me, AJP


Thanks to Linda Houghton who had given me a spotlight .. Thanks for all of the nice comments and fav's. I have never before in my life time stood that close to a wild deer and to shoot it running, with the benefit of fog and mist fulfilled my dream. I made it into a Holiday card this year for the friends and relatives on my Christmas list.
