The one-headed doe drinking becomes two
heads reflected in the pond. Now the third
one jumps and dashes, splashes with its hooves
this youngest one especially happy
enjoying itself. More than anything
I love when unexpected creatures come
unaware till they though not I have had
enough and turn to leave, their heads going
into the trees, backs and rumps the bushes
shivering goldenrod. Right now the sky
is recollecting itself immense and
unfathomable as it’s always been
since I can remember peaceful and blue
allowing one butterfly to pass through.
