Small Deer

Small Deer

A Poem by Ciara Di Salle
"

Written for a wild life contest!

"
Eyes of deepest black
Searching
Innocent
Distracted
            Skittish
and jumpy, 
Frail limbs entangled in the weeds, 
Shaking legs and twitching
            Ears
Bends clumsily down
To drink from the river-
side
Unaware in its bliss is
The small 
deer

C...you seem to have a natural hand at this. I liked this very much. But there are a couple of things I want to ask you. Don't 'skittish' and 'jumpy' kind of mean the same thing here? Is the deer feeling 'bliss' or are you? (I just never feel prey feels bliss...people do.) Just asking. Well done and keep at it...bobc

Thank you again :)
Very symbolic. I do not yet understand what is in the deer, but I know in some sense that it symbolizes something more significant.
