I'm headed out for a walk and want to share a bit of my everyday experience.
I live in a beautifully wooded area, where daffodils line the street. No matter how busy or how distressing the day might be, a walk outside can clear my mind and my heart almost immediately. Natual beauty has a way of capturing the soul and freeing the breath, doesn't it?
Yesterday turkeys skattered when they spotted me, othertimes deer freeze and watch me carefully. I'm always entranced by little fawns. With the warmer weather, I sometimes walk with my eyes closed and just listen to the birds sing.
Nature seems to be my theme this week, so when author Colleen Chesebro invited writers to submit a haiku or senryu (5-7-5 syllables), I thought of a fawn. I hope you enjoy my simple attempt.
