Doe’s brace of fawns feeding on the near-verge
Still-spotted fawns advance unalarmed,
The larger of the two stalking a black cat
Driving the predator into the woods,
Outsized – better to pursue rodents.
Passersby walking their dogs pause to gawk.
A redtail hawk studies from a tower.
The year’s final blackberries hide in thorns.
All the rhythms cycle through, bringing fall.
