This week construction on a new development of townhomes began in my neighborhood.   This place, where I pass every day on my morning walk, filled me with peace and beauty.  Today, I feel a sense of loss as bulldozers dig the earth and uproot trees.  I worry about the wildlife, especially the deer.  Where will they go?  How long before they are displaced again?

replaces forest, meadow, stream

clanking equipment
drown bumblebees and birdsong

deer don't live here anymore

A huge thank you to Kathryn for hosting this week's Poetry Friday.
