Grilled Venison At Daybreak

Grilled Venison At Daybreak


Headed to a branding out at Big Creek,

I was still twenty miles from the Gang#,

When my enjoyment of the morning,

Kind of, ended with a …BANG! 


We met there on the gravel Road,

Mutual; bad judgement, speed and luck,

Spelled the end for one big mule deer,

and my old pickup truck.


Arising from the crumpled hood,

Rose tinted steam and coolant spray,

 reflect the growing light of dawn.

“It’s gonna be a lovely day. “
