Three Haiku about Nature

A Fawn Escapes 
The grave  of Doctor John Conolly MD DCL (1) 

The fawn bends to drink
In the river lies a croc
The jaws snap, a second late

The Surviving Sentinel 

Standing sentinel
Over a barren landscape
The last survivor

In Quiet Repose 

In quiet repose
A sublime and peaceful scene
An old gravestone
