I wish I had spots

I wish I had spots

like a fawn.

she reminds the world,

with her round white dots,

she is just a child.

babe of the woods.

we have forgiveness when

she runs too fast

or eats our daffodils.


aren’t we all chitals

-the spotted deer-

children of the world?

trying to figure it out.

just children on the path

hoping to get it right.


in some way.

at some time.


and when we fall,

bambi legs skating out

from underneath us,

shouldn’t we see the spots

of the fawn sliding in splits

give her patience and grace

and help her on her way?
