A Simile - Poem by Navarre Scott Momaday

What did we say to each other
that now we are as the deer
who walk in single file
with heads high
with ears forward
with eyes watchful
with hooves always placed on firm ground
in whose limbs there is latent flight

    interesting write, short, concise..
    Indeed, a latent flight is almost always in our minds, if not in our limbs..
