Basic Instincts

deer in snow

Their snow kissed noses burrowed deep

into the weathered, fallen snow-

from the snow banks,

dangling ice crystals formed the flowery frost.

The evening brought illusions of daylight

peering through sun-kissed mirages-

tantalized by the streaming water particles

which caused their need to pant-

they sipped from melted water droplets,

and they grazed from blades of covered grass.

The blankets made from the Winter’s snow covered them-

and Hardwood trees provided their shelter.
