This Banquet of Life

Sliding through the grass
I crept close enough to see
a doe and a young one
resting in the sun by the pond
its glimmer and backed by
a forest of fir
their shadows full of mystery
and an eagle swoops by
sharing the view.
A fish jumps in the pond
startles the doe and she leads
her baby as their journey continues.
If I had not arrived so soon
I would have missed the dance.
