In the night a fawn
learns the touch of wonderment,
snow has fallen soft


Racoon climbs down from
oak tree den foraging for
food to feed her kits


Mayfly hatchlings hover
over water trout rising
feasting for the day


Corn field ripening
fawn at lower fence stares at
unknown two-legged animal


Carp dying on beach
last of its species lake’s loss
speedboat joyride kills


Rattler lurking poised
amid the roots to strike at
inquisitive mouse


Human predators below
Possum in its leafy tree
seeking safety hides


Horse ears held back
apprehensive as snake moves
seeking morning sun


These thoughts just a clutch
of  rough words upon a page
Haiku Masquerade
