roses survived after all
these years, countless tries

later, now out back fending for
themselves against wandering deer

this morning’s herd of
deer pranced through the backyard a
blur, only the buck

paused, looked back once to check that
no one had been left behind

roses try not to look too
enticing to the

traveling deer, blossoms under
the chinese mahogany

at the golden hour,

at the golden hour,
you prance across the cornfields
and look back at us,

admiring the way the light
hits our faces while watching you

mama’s hydrangeas,

mid-chew, one can still

half-an-hour to

half-an-hour to
sunrise, one hour before
the guests arrive in

our backyard, staying alert to
guard mama’s sweet potato leaves

a glimpse of a white-tailed deer

siblings play, testing
their boundaries
two bucks in velvet
mark their scent,
rubbing their antlers
across our pine hedge
