In a forest clearing

Poem
4

a woman speaks
to a  downy deer

he swallows yellow
flowers from her hand

She tells him twitchy stories
blue stillness, ancient stars

fir, cake, rain
how to smell his way

when to lurk and vanish
in the braided dark

~ Found poem composed/modified from words in Maggie Smith’s poem “Vanishing Point.”
