The deer and the frog

Photo by Dan Fraser

In our walk in the woods

around the duck pond yesterday

I observed a deer looking down on us

I would never see him

without some movement

he blends in so perfectly

even his eyes and ears turned towards us

could be enough

a few minutes later

only when he moved

I spotted a tiny green frog

he jumped twice away from us

thinking he was safer

when he stopped he immediately

became invisible to our eyes

movement indicates life

but can also draw danger

the opposite of intent
