Mindful Writing Challenge: Day 31

The Deer

In the storm’s quiet
I see you.
Bedded down
on white ground
your peace, consuming.
Tree branches create
the haystack
you are the needle in.

A scene of wintery-land
and serenity.
Caught in my camera’s
lens you are safe.
My beating heart watches you
protects you
from my own warm lair.
In a jump you are gone.
