  1. We both used the word fawn today. Serendipity? Synchronicity? A tender haiku.

    uncanny at least.

    This row of deer look vaguely familiar.. ;> Usually they’re strung across my side yard and when I use my flashlight at night, that’s just what they look like, Scot. That, “what the he!! you lookin’ at, biatch!” Sorry, couldn’t help myself *laugh*

    On second look, tho, your line of deer look sweeter, more in control, and seem merely inquisitive. So, your deer are not my deer afterall, Scot. But sometimes they can fool ya because they all look alike. Mwaaaahahaha! (You can smack me now 🙂

    While I’m here – congratulations on your exquisite poem, Sometimes the Mist of the Mountains featured in the first issue of the new and beautiful literary site, Asphalt Sky. I simply love this poem! You capture the essence of country living beautifully and oh, my, what you wrote about that “..whippoorwill echo..” and how the “hickory smoke spreads out..below the Appalachian stars/shooting across a blackberry sky.” Just gorgeous imagery! I love your work, Scot.. 🙂
