Her tiny delicate feet work their way through the wood.
Brilliant shafts of sunlight reflect back shining auburn.
As though choreographed, each step plays out a drama,
a delightful parody.
A sudden stop!
Her brown eyes penetrate my soul.....
The moment makes my chest suddenly sink and
my heart quicken.
Then...without warning, her muscles tense,
her eyes become fixed;
And what seems the flash of a firefly...
The doe disappeared into the forest.
