these hoof prints
cloven evidence
hunters seek

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    So true, and cloven implies a darker side (tho I know that it is a type of hoof).

    If only the cloven-hooved one could mask his prints!! Good one Susan.

  4. Nice shot! and great verse –did you take the picture???

    • Thanks Audrey–no, this one is not mine–too muddy & wet outside to walk through my woods, which are full of deer this time of year.

      I was looking through my camera–this summer I happened upon a wonderful mix of tracks all in one spot; raccoon, coyote, and deer, all together at the creek bank. Could not find the darned thing today. Grrr.

    If only the critters had long tails with brushes to sweep away their trail.

  9. Patti says:

    I sympathize with the prey too. When I read your haiku, my first thought was “RUN!”

  10. Green Speck says:

    These are true, but sad for the prey !!!

  11. Jolly says:

    Well-captured, the plight of the prey!
