Pit stop trailside, I
Walk through the tall grass, then squat –
Soft brown eyes meet mine.
Tan fur, curled and spotted, rests.
My bizness done, we part ways.
Mother looks both ways,
crosses country road at dusk –
fawns dawdle after.
She shows the way through the fence
And where to lie on dry leaves.

This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to the fawn (Kanoko).
