Observances from my times Hunting.

Joel D Anderson

 

From the Deer Stand

 

A light snow falling

On the gray and green ground.

A Chickadee singing

With a singular sound.

 

A Fox leaps hopefully

On a Rabbits den.

A Rabbit bolts swiftly

From the other end.

 

A Gray Squirrel stutters

Bearing his soul.

A Woodpecker removes clutter

From his tree trunk hole.

 

Some think that hunting is shooting and killing,

But it can be healing to the watchful and willing.

Being in nature and taking the time to just sit, watch and listen is truly healing. Put away the phones and just breathe. It helps calm the mind. If more people would just try it once they would see it's not about killing an animal but for the peace and quiet one gets within themselves.
