cute roe deer pasturing on green meadow in wild valley

That Step

The deer's step cautiously slides, 
glides is guided by the urge to conceal
against the act of revealing its presence
in concealment.
That relaxed, attentive act of one step
following another ready to take 
another or to flee at the sense
of danger --
                    the ultimate act of trust
this refusal to face danger,
to know that wherever it goes
the deer will be, simply, where it is:
feeding, bedding down, meandering.
Much like us, the revealing
of concealing though a little different --
our urge to fight
or flee not the same
when facing danger.
