3 Seconds Before The Shot Poem by Sonny Rainshine

3 Seconds Before The Shot

Rating: 5.0

The brown doe for a moment
mesmerizes the boys in camouflage,
broadcasting a telepathic message:
I stand before you here,
majestic as Nature,
graceful as a ballerina,
my beauty is never-ending
and will lodge in your heart,
as the bullet will in mine
long after this deed is done.

Hunting to eat is forgivable hunting for sport is abhorrent to me unless done with a camera

Excellent poem. Beauty must be its own reward. My sentiments are entirely with the deer. Warm regards, Sandra

So dreadfully, painfully, horribly true. If only.... Good writing. Shaun.
