Perseverance

deer hunt wounded perseveranceI doubt that she,
or any of the others,
ever think about it.

Somehow,
when younger,
she injured one leg,

she could not
use it at all,
never put weight on it.

deer hunt wounded perseveranceWe kept hoping
it would get better,
but it never did,

and then
we feared
she was doomed.

This was
several years ago.

Now
a great-grandmother,
having raised fawns
almost every year,

deer hunt wounded perseverance
Now
the matriarch
of a small herd
of beautiful does,

Now
still able
to feed and breed
and even run quickly
on three legs,

she just
carries on,

she just
endures,

she just
continues

to live fully.
