so dear

as i pulled up to my house late last night
my stomach dropped.
i thought i saw someone standing in front of my house
and it freaked me out.
then i noticed it was just a deer.
i felt bad because i had scared her
and she was frozen, looking me straight in the eyes.
then it hit me,
deer are truly beautiful creatures.
this may sound lame,
but it took my breath away.
i sat in my car for a few minutes
and watched until she ran back up the mountain.
this short run-in made me appreciate
something i never gave second thought to before.
moral of the story: deer are dear :)
