Hunter's Delight

leaves the canvas backdrop
under this monochrome sky
herbivore bites herbivore in Jachtlust
green tangles, white-mottled leaves,
thorns & branches & at all angles

once well-tended flower garden,
now indecipherable, wild in its beauty
fills an empty pond full
and sun turns cloudy to night
on a summer eve at Jachtlust,

then nature blows the door shut.
a rapping sound in windy night,
some stalking will seems to wait.
but one knows in here no fear--
no danger comes within these walls.
