i
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.

Frank J. Tassone is the host of Haikai Challenge.  Frank says:
This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to the fawn (Kanoko).
