blessed by a present

Water ripples slowly pass by in this stream I watch
Sitting on the bank in the mountains perhaps waiting for a deer to cross
I sit there awhile wondering when it will come
Only to feel the clouds covering up my sun
I start to shiver as time goes by
As I glance up into the sky
And see clouds moving by
I turn my head just in time to see a squirrel scurry up a tree
And not to far after that
A butterfly that has landed on a tree
I smile and I am happy by what I see
Turning my head around and staring back at the stream
I sit very still as I am still watching the ripples of water go by
Then I see something out of the corner of my eye
I slowly turn my head to the left
And there stands a albino deer with antlers on it's head
One, two, three, I count the points on his rack
Oh no all of a sudden I have to itch my back
I can help it any longer I need to move and itch
As I move he see's my movement and is gone without a hitch
How beautiful it is to see such a miracle of nature
I will always cheerish what I saw
And yes I am still in awe

I am a man of various skills and sick and twisted minds.....yes minds... 800 dimensions I see things in and I like to become things............ only a portion of what I write is about personal experiences.
