I came home this evening gasping in awe
so fresh are the white speckles on the fawn
She looks so calm with those big eyes
Her neck twists as she watches her resting twin
bending her legs she lays on the forest floor
Mothers never leave them when they are this young
the tears caress my eyelids
tomorrow they awaken to tomorrow’s challenge
tonite they rest under nature’s canopy
so new to the world
orphans in forest sanctuary
The prompt at Carep Diem Haiku Kai is Fawn.

Tho young…it would appear that mom has taught some skills necessary for survival.
I saw one today when I was walking back from the lake, I guess I scared her because she ran off so quick!
oh wow what a cute sight ❤
Oh those fawns they have to face life without their mother.
EXCELLENT WIRK….BUT ISN’T THERE ANOTHER TERM WHERE ONE DOES A BIT OF PROSE FIRST AND THEN A HAIKU….LIKE HAIBAN????

A post of great tenderness – under a superb forest header. Well done.
The thought of the young fending for themselves can be of much concern. One is not certain if they can get a decent meal before retiring for the night. Some may not even have a place to stay! Well said Moonie!
I watched over them as they started dozing knowing there are know critters that could attack them during the night.
Touching, Leslie. :-).
This is so touching ❤
Awesome Leslie … nicely composed poem and haiku …. the haiku fits your project “fill the crack” also … chapeau!
Somehow, it made me sad… 😦
