  1. lol…”vegetarian”
    Okay, I love my brain. I’m thinking why did she say “Oh, Dear” in the title. What happened to the deer? Lightbulb went off…that’s why I’m the life of the party, at least the laugh of the party.
    Clever poem. I love deer. They are all around my street. 🙂

    1. You made me smile, Sam! We have them everywhere and truthfully, I love them! They’re docile and peaceful, but for those who’s passion is gardening, they are problematic. So far, we have deer resistant flowers…

    1. You’re right, Marie, but I was focusing on the “sauntering” and not the vegetation in the image, so this one worked out well for me. Additionally, he’s “searching,” therefore, vegetation doesn’t need to be in the image~

    1. Thanks, Christine, I’m glad I could bring a smile your way! We have many around here and I love them, but others love their gardens more! 🙂 Have a wonderful day!

  2. Beautiful Haiku and I especially loved it because I used to be in the woods very often (ok, I was a deer hunter) and watched deer for hours in the mornings and evenings. Eventually I became attached to them in a way that I couldn’t even “drop” a 12 point buck when the opportunity arose. One morning a fawn grazed fallen wild apples and pears within touching distance of me as I sat in camouflage next to a tree. My heart was racing even though I knew it couldn’t hurt me. I’ve heard of buck fever before, but apparently there is fawn fever as well 🙂

    1. Thanks, Scott, and you made me smile, reading that you couldn’t “drop” that buck! My hubby would love to hunt, but hasn’t, yet, and that’s something he and I don’t quite agree on…I know there is a reason for it, but like the deer, they’re just so docile and beautiful…it’s a tough one, but not to make you feel bad, either! 🙂 It’s just not in my blood! Many around here don’t like them b/c they eat the gardens, but I love watching them walk down the street. So far, deer resistant flowers are working just fine! 🙂

  3. This deer just KNOWS he has the right to out here following his nose to some tender green stuff, right? The photo and the haiku match each other perfectly.

I appreciate your thoughts!
