Content.


Eyes closed and neck craned;
drinking to its heart's content-
doe suckles her fawn.
*********************************
Ouch!! slurp-fest begins,
drinking to their hearts' content-
merry mosquitoes.
*********************************
Glances turn to gaze,
drinking to their hearts' content-
eyes thirsting for love.

  1. Beautiful. Doe suckles her fawn. You have described the motherly love so beautifully. I am in awe of your English knowledge. Until I read this post, I never heard of the word "suckle". I just googled it. As I wrote earlier, I did not go to Harvard. I only graduated from.....forget it.

    1. Thank you for your kind words SG. I guess I owe my vocabulary to my reading of classics and editorials.
