yes, deer

Chevré at Carpe Diem invites us to dig into archives. Haiku submitted to Lyrical Iowa a couple years ago; not published so posting now, along with photo taken last Sept. in Colorado Springs (added 2 lines to make it a tanka).


 

liquid eyes, white tail

grace notes on musical scale

doe does as does do

 

fans fawning at her beauty

evidence the buck stopped here

autumn bounty

 

harvest harmonized

pheasant struts from ripe cornfield

deer leaps pumpkin patch

culmination of seasons

color life deep rich orange

My tanka response to Ramblings of a Writer’s prompt: seasons, harmonized.

 

oh, deer!

 

ibex, ebex, imax, apex

it seems they’re all the sames

you cantaloupe with antelope

if you don’t know their names!
