Buzzing and Nuzzling
The young chestnut brown deer nuzzled against his snow-white woolly friend in the meadow.
Yellow buttercups shielded them from the outsiders.
Sunbeams reached from the blue sky to warm the sleepy couple.
Lolli Lamb lay her gentle head on the fuzzy neck of her dear friend Doue’ Deer.
She grinned as she thought about his little tail sticking up as he protected her from Old Grey Bully Goat.
No one saw this but her.
Doue’s long legs running through the meadow, jumping over streams and leaping through thickets, were like fingers strumming a guitar.
His melody sweet and sad rang in Lolli’s heart and pulled on the strings of her soul.
His sounds buzzed in her ear like the bees when they make golden honey, and hummed like the sparrows when they welcome the sun over the crest.
Doue’s big brown loving, longing, eyes looked into Lolli’s precious soul.
She kissed each of Doue’s eyelids, which told him I love you too.
He flicked an orange ladybug off the soft pink inside of Lolli’s ear.
Doue’ woke and realized he was dreaming of Lolli.
He remembered she was not nuzzled beside him in the field any longer, but rather on a journey in a faraway land.
A tear squeezed from Doue’s big, brown eye.
He felt a slight breeze and then a white and brown butterfly dried the tear with her silky wing.
The tiniest bit of pink spotted the butterfly’s wing.
