Oh no! I looked at the first photo in large version and I was thrilled: I thought that was such a happy deer. But the 2nd photo and your poetry. I hope they are safe. I feel their anxiety in your poems.

Those poor deer -they must be confused and upset. All the water and few places even for the turtles to rest. I like this blog, Lisa ... I like your gardening blog too, but I enjoy coming here and seeing your creativity with words, images and in paint.

Everything and Everyone in this area is anxious Andree.

I am so glad you stopped by Kate.

Thank you Vixen

Hopefully the water will recede soon Raven.

Thank you Gardenpath. I hope they make it too.

the anxiety that must be felt by wildlife in situations such as these is quite palpable.

Very good haiku--both. Hope the deer are okay.

Great shots and takes on stranded.

These remind me that any living creature can become stranded.

I hope if Mother Nature does not comply, that someone steps in to save them.

hopefully waters
receded permitting the
deer to return 'home'

I’m late to visit because ‘life’ got in the way, but I did publish two ‘week 6’ posts for One Single Impression: Stranded ... one on each of my blogs on Wednesday of last week and I hope you’ll find time to visit. They’re here: Heliocopter Rescue and Polar Bears
Hugs and blessings,
