Deer Haiku

four more wait, watching,
while this one tests our brakes –
an unhurried deer

blue sky
the black eyes of a deer

@martin Thanks so much for this lovely response! I think it's time for you to start sharing your 'ku with the internet again, please!

But wait...
Have you been to my blog? ...just click on martin and then click martin's haiku attempts and leave comments, haiku, or anything you like...pretty please:

pond mist
the frog jumps into the sneeze

October chill
the pine trees pass through the moon

childhood beach house
the wind ripples the dune

train window
the sun follows the geese


storm surge
the boatman fingers the pipe bowl


the missing girl reappears on the next pole


distant fires
lovers shout under a blue moon


whispering twins
willow fluff passes over the crib


bank holiday
another gust through the schoolyard swings


scotch whiskey dusk
howling dogs at the bottom of the glass

I wish you and your family a very Happy New Year!

Love this! The photo, the haiku - all of it. We see deer every now and then at our cabin - usually the fawns. So beautiful. I'm guessing they are plentiful where you are. I'm baking my Haiku(s) for tomorrow, Haiku Fridays.
