Where the Grass is Greener

Deer image by a photographer named Deb, I found it when I Googled "deer grazing."  Here's her flickr page: http://www.flickriver.com/photos/kywoody/201299871/

O deer, grazing as the
flies named in your honor do the same upon you
chomp and step
gently tugging at the grasses
twitch an ear unsettle a bug to buzz
and re-approach inches over.
Suggest to disturb their activity
with the little wind whistling swishes of your
tiny tail
listen for predators
(larger than the flies that is)
and continue.
Over a fence
in a corral
a horse sees you, snorts,
thinks he's got it so much better
than you, for he can outright swat!
Step, step tug,
you found
