Walking together down a path crowded with moss,
white oaks, and thorny bracken we pause,
alerted to a rustle in the blanketing of
brown leaves.

A deer bounds across the gap, and another
in its wake - twin sable things, moving like
quick breaths in the brush.

One leaps, and I swear it hangs
for a moment in the air, legs taut,
neck arched, looking like a crescendo
of music and all the world's
brightest poetry.

I try and fail to express
that I have never seen,
out in the muddy world, such a clear and
perfect image
of what happens in the lovestruck leaping
of my heart.

    Did you know some trolls have two heads, while others can have up to five? They look so freakish, I hope I never meet one.
