Before The Sun

There is another world that most never see. It is a world full of darkness and abundant life. Rising before the sun offers encounters with the night scavangers.....those creatures who have chosen to work their chores while the rest of the world lies in comfortable nests and holes...and beds....waiting for the warmth of the new day. I frequently encounter a family of deer that have made my end of the Ridge their home. We occasionally make eye contact and in unspoken words we offer each other the respect of being that has long been forgotten in the world of the light. We usually nod our heads in recognition and continue on our separate trails. They travel to quiet places to escape the coming madness of the light....I travel to a corner office to mingle with the noise of humans and technology. I want to be a deer......
