A stay at the farm…


young flies,rounded wings,buzzing up a storm against the window,rain is clearing,blue sky, the mountains visible in between the clouds.         Deer are coming forwards,i am not outside now,so all is safe.     Wood stove humming with the heat,i can feel it against my back,so wonderful, so comforting.      Very large puddles in the fields, the sun reflecting in the now quiet water, some fields are fully flooded, ducks landing, to do some dabbling, frogs croaking every where, robins singing , i do believe spring is here……..       Deer jumping the fences, on spring loaded legs, keeping an eye on me, behind the glass, candles burning, a soft golden light, trying to read the words in my book.         They are coming closer now, its all ok, dusk is coming fast,i am quiet.    A large female deer, trying to out stare me, i am holding still in the candle light , a raspberry hovering , halfway to my mouth.      Not moving and then she jumps the fence,closer still , all other six follow to graze around the cabin.   I can still see the last deer, almost dark out there now, its shape is close to me , it munches on some grass here and there, before jumping the fence, with incredible ease.     The sky is clear, it will be nice tomorrow…….

  1. It was like being there with you. You made a lovely picture with your words. It is actually a poem if you arrange the sentences underneath each other. Sounds like a place for you in the future when sailing is done! Greetings, Rita.
