Summer Dawn

This morning was magical as I shared the dawn in our yard this morning with expectant pumpkin blossoms, rabbits, crows, a squirrel, a full-cheeked chipmunk, and a deer staying quietly in the forest shadows behind the barn. For a few seconds the deer steps an inch into the sunlight, its ruddy fur glowing like bronze. The trunks of black cherry seem to glow in the spotlight of the rising sun. I feel so lucky to live here, in this clearing in the woods.
