“That’s so Awesome”

As far as we wished to walk’

the world was ours and it felt good,

to walk across fields filled with crops

watch deer bound away in the distance;


To blaze a trail through the tall grass,

allowing my son to catch up and ask questions;

like” where did this deer antler come from”?


The familiar old dirt roads;

lead us past a new sheep farm;

just up from the creek

where me and my son collected a deer skeleton

scattered about the forest;


We climbed trees as high as we could;

till they got the best of us;



Then we were giant’s

pushing over rotten trees’

watching them fall and hit the ground

with a satisfying



Little pieces would fly into the air

and my son marveled;

“That’s so awesome!
