The Deer Passed Right Through And Into The Soul



          This is the way of it


I am 12 years old

           I was born on the 7th of July

You wouldn’t know it
     I could always see beyond the ordinary everyday
          But no one believed me

Then one day it happened
     That I saw something I shouldn’t

I saw a deer cross the path of someone
     Such that the deer
          Passed right through
               And into their soul

The two become one
     And then apart again
          In an instant

     But the man was altered

The man was altered
     Because his Being
          Had seen the beauty of another living beast


     Because of this

          Because of this he had grown
               And diminished in size
                    From the inside out

I whispered…

“Gentle gracious creature

     How gracefully you transfer your nature



                     One to another,”


Then closed my eyes,

     And let it drift away.
