Waka Challenge Day 29

Just two more days to go: our Waka Challenge ends on Sunday. Today, a few more from one of our favorite waka writers:

Broken legged doe
lay sleeping in my driveway
I changed my habits
and long after she'd moved on
I remembered her sweet face

Just before sunrise
the deer gather on my lawn
for a silent feast
from inside, my barking dogs
awaken the neighborhood

On a rainy day
I light a lamp inside
for a chance to curl up
with a good book and a dog

the abandoned cats
down by the railroad station
napping in the sun
a few moments of pleasure
before dashing off to hide
