Surprise Encounter

I walk out

under wind blown canopy

forest trail

rain soaked

quiet

stealthy

collect last moments of light

 

Doe

fawn

opportunity gone

I continue

 

Big buck

stomps

snorts

trespass challenge

 

I pull up my bow

like M-1 carbine

on patrol

heart racing reaction

 

Frozen

I watch

 

He turns bolts

proud

defiant

 

silhouette memory

ghost

Woodland King
