The End

shutterstock_186441350 (1)Dawn is green pasture

Wet with dew,

Clover and stolen strawberries.

The joy of survival.

The silent warmth of companionship.

A blast,

A flash,

A crash through the wood.

Darkness is claiming

Both grass and blood.

The black, glassy eye

Unsees the sky.

  1. Wow, speaking of flashbacks! This reminded me of the movie Powder. Twenty years later and I still recall the scene with the deer and the hunter.
