HUNTRESS AND SIREN


Listen softly to the traces
left behind hesitant steps,
slowly walking the shadows
of winter mist, whispering
forest fragrance, serpent
haze wound around trees.

She strecthed her mighty bow
as the stag slowly neared,
released it fast, the prey was hurt.
She walked around her final blow
with force to give, strong and overt.
The wounded stag's circular gaze
projected soul, the Huntress' maze.
A living creature, a mind ablaze
with death's sacred fireball haze.
She let the bow fall to the ground
bowed to the deer's wound, unbound
tearing her vest she tied the wound
to stop the blood, She turned around.
The deer's stare godlike and human
the Huntress' mind earthlike and mist
they fuse together, a single moment
Huntress and prey in one they exist.
One could not know who felt sorrow,
could not erase the bonding due.
The Huntress walked, tears in Her eyes,
softly in the forest of morning dew.
Her fierce bow was left behind
never to ever be touched again.
The deer grandiosly limped aside
Her sight to carry in mind's terrain.

And time passed, like seasons
and winter's cold brisk came along.
Through darkest forests She
walked naked to far-away shores
transforming Siren, an echo's song.

{=} ~ Beautiful !

The deer's stare godlike and human
the Huntress' mind earthlike and mist
they fuse together, a single moment
Huntress and prey in one they exist.
One could not know who felt sorrow,
could not erase the bonding due.
The Huntress walked, tears in Her eyes,
softly in the forest of morning dew.
Her fierce bow was left behind
never to ever be touched again.


Interested, I don't know how you could have possibly known this, but the above is so representative of an event that actually occurred. The last deer I took was an eleven pointer. It was a massive buck, only a few points short of a record that year in Pennsylvania, and may have possibly been the biggest tuck taken by a woman in the same state that year. I had hit it with a spine shot that paralyzed it. It just simply dropped where it had been hit, no more than 30 yards from where I stood. When I approached it, I looked in the eyes of this beautiful creature and I knew I had taken something that didn't belong to me. It was one of those mythical moments that seem to occur in a smoke-filled haze.

I no longer hunt.

Thank you for this, Interested. I could not have let this go without letting you know how wonderful this was ...
