Thursday photo prompt: Bright #writephoto

The Rules:

Every Thursday at noon GMT, I publish one of my photos as a writing prompt.  If you know where the photo was taken, please keep it to yourself until the challenge is closed and I usually share something about the place during the round-up.

Use the image and title provided as inspiration to create a post on your own blog… poetry, prose, humour… light or dark, whatever you choose, by noon (GMT)  on Wednesday  each week,  and link back to the promt post with a pingback to be included in the round-up.  There is no word limit and no style requirements, except to keep it fairly family friendly and not passionately political.

All posts will be featured in the round-up on Thursday.

Target Practice?

by Teresa Smeigh 2019

There is nothing like a stroll through the quiet wooded sanctuaries and state parks. Before walking became very painful for me I used to stroll through the woods and when with a friend he would point out different things in nature to me. We came across deer many times and they didn’t always run away.

I miss the daily walks, but I can’t walk for more than a few minutes now and walking through the forest is dangerous with the roots for my footing. I have taken a few spills. I can’t chance being alone and walking in these areas.

One day we spotted a deer up ahead. He was bounding through the woods and suddenly he disappeared. We continued walking and suddenly we came upon him with an arrow in his side. This was a fresh kill and we anxiously looked around as we headed out of that area quickly before we became the next target.

      Partly fiction although there were times that there were others in the area. We found bullet casings as we walked so someone was shooting in there. We kept our eyes open for humans.

          That is the truth.. We tried to stay out of there when it was hunting season because there were a lot of deer in there. Beautiful area though.
