A Simile Poem by Navarre Scott Momaday

A Simile

Rating: 2.9


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..

Like the waves of wonder from a simple Native American flute, the answer is a song flowing in the wind, lingering in our hearts... always in flight somewhere, in some way.
