A Shadorma for Eliot’s November Shadorma Challenge and Jane’s A Month with Yeats Challenge.
“..by water among the trees
The delicate-stepping stag and his lady sigh” —W.B. Yeats
stag and doe
over golden leaves
side by side
at dusk, searching, wandering–
sighing, find a home
Golden indeed. (K)
Thank you, Kerfe.
intriguing last words: deer in search of finding a home, we tending to see the animals already at home or knowing where their home is (even migrating over large expanses)
I think these deer are on some sort of epic journey. 🙂
These are German Expressionist deer, they are epic 🙂
Hahaha–you win for comments, Jane! 🙂
The Germans always win, so I’m told 🙂
Sometimes it seems like it 🙂
Well, they lost two world wars–though only after a lot of death and destruction. But they did win at Expressionism, I think. 🙂
They lost two world wars and still ended up top nation in Europe, and they always win the football 🙂
Thank you, Ken.
Nature’s glowing through their lives as deer. It makes the deer more personified, I think. ❤
Thank you. I do tend to anthropomorphize. 😉
I like to especially do this, maybe it is for me reaching inside to my inner child! 😉
I think my inner child is right there on the surface. 😉
Oh, I see your husband and you happy and having fun, both utilizing connections and inner children.
But, your professional work and editing a serious book, that is demanding and draining. . . so, it is wonderful to be carefree in other moments. 👧👸👩It certainly helps me!
Yes, it does!
