It was the creepiest of the creepiest spookiest night.  The moon illuminated the woods with an ominous leering glow.  Deer was nervous, expecting the worst dangers of dangers.  She coughed an uncomfortable warning to her fawn, who...Read More

Wild exploits of hunting food
Other indications of self-survival
Light moves the wolf on the terrain
Few observations as the vultures fly

Inner thoughts of hunger and survival
Nnumerous observation still as vultures snack their beaks

Solid rushes the wolf ponders running
Hostilely he moves towards his...Read More

Premium Member Mountain Bike Trails
Anyone who mountain bikes on a wilderness trail,
especially where wildlife predators are known to prevail,
are all performing a very unsafe and dangerous thing,
that could end fatally or seriously life threatening.
Wildlife preditors like bears have very poor vision,
so when they see...Read More

Premium Member I Cannot Outguess This Dog Today
Sophie Dog is excited beyond belief
No idea what she has heard, but she is barking like crazy
Sometimes a large truck puts her into this kind of frenzy

The way she runs up the driveway, I am expecting to see

What has happened?
Who can tell?
Something is amiss.
I can feel it, but is it only me?
Are there others who suspect?
The sun has arrived.
Does she know?
I go outside and I sniff the air.
Something is off.
An unusual vibe.
I would not be surprised to...Read More

unfriendly hearts love
shall a female, weak deer skips
whilst watching the lake

bright place for watching
a small, menacing deer runs
beyond the lorry 

Highest bitter mount
when mountain lion eating
after kills eats deer

Premium Member Answering Shriek To My Left
In the woods no right of way, no right to live, no right to play.
I travel quickly, as dusk is beginning. Woods are thick, on this day.
Wood tick and spider heaven, I walk gingerly, on wet old leaves.

The Trap
If I were a mountain lion
I would've been wary and wise
back turned safely to the wall
watching with careful eyes

I would've been cautious, cagey
and on the lookout for lies
but instead I trusted blindly
and fell for your disguise

You were my blood relation

I’m a dolphin without waves
I’m a mountain lion without his prey
Again, I’m a beaver without a dam
I will come as I am – His wandering lamb

Sang the tunes in my brain
Weakening in the ruins
I broke down, thinking I’m insane
Empty without...Read More

Premium Member A Knowing Without Knowing How
The woods were quiet, idyllic, proud.
It was spring, so the butterflies were back.
Cattails honored the pond with their resolute presence.
A lone doe was delicately drinking the cool, clear water.
All was still in the woods.

Without warning, everything changed.
All of her senses...Read More

Rocky Mountains
Rocky Mountains

by Adrian Sutalo

North Park valley where
outdoor adventures await,
Great Lakes to Rocky Mountains 
journey, to seal a cervidae’s fate.

Roads past endless cornfields stretched toward the horizon,
acres tens of thousands of rolling golden prairies,
The burning smell of asphalt of North Platte...Read More

The air was still, and trees in the forest stood in frozen silence.
A rare day, animals listened to the echo of last summer.
Hare trails in the snow made without haste, the persecuted
has nothing to fear the day when the mountain...Read More

Or Ultimately We All Fall
She was gooey like maple syrup

     & marshmallow s'mores,

stronger than  a mountain lion

    protecting her cubs,

wore prescription rose-tinted 

     sunglasses with GPS,

she'd been around long enough

Oh dearest Alice you’ve fallen through my looking glass of reality,

Instead wild, free amongst clover evergreen valley’s lust!
Here dreaming child of enchantment’s lore, storybook charm exists
Within the natural revelry of the wild...Read More

The clouds drape low, 
shrugging blue mountain shoulders,
melding with ghostly river mist
ascending in specterous vapor trails
salted with primordial tears.

Between stately mottled sycamores 
and aged medicinal white oaks,
slippered phantom figures glide,
clad in hides of deer and mountain lion.
Down to the silvered...Read More

Spooky The Spooky Horse
Where did my horse go? Spooky was off
in a flash.A horse with lightning speed.He
made his ungrateful dash.Because the barn
door was open, and ole Spooky was gone.
Maybe it was a grizzly bear, or possibly the
grey fox, or even a mountain lion?...Read More

Lady liberty, hold your flame light high, 
Beware the path thy cross, in the wild undiscovered

Haiku Trilogy 

Fox poises mid-step

Rabbit scent tantalizes

Mouth waters wildly


Eyes peer intently

Haunches crouched, slung low to ground

Biding time to spring


Mountain lion growls

Padded feet part tall grasses

Hunter now hunted
