Poetry Friday

two deer ease their thirst
oblivious to the train
and my own delight

Love the contrast in images here with the peaceful deer pausing and the train thundering. Easing their thirst balanced between potential destruction and an observer's perception of beauty. At least that's how I see it...

Wonderful haiku!

I didn't know Zetta Elliot wrote haiku! Thanks for the heads up on Zetta's YA novel. I'd like to check that out, too.

I was concerned for the deer till I got in the train, and then thoroughly enjoyed the scenery.

It's the sort of thng that you like, but you're not sure you do!It like eating something sweet and sour together. If that makes sense.
