SeptHaikuWriMo 11

I risked waking up
a sleeping child today when
the window showed me

a creature without
human accompaniment
and then another

I saw they were deer
through the steam and window shade
trudging thru the yard

and into the road
a car put its blinkers on
as they galloped down

the hill escaping
the frame of my camera
I fell back amazed

to my seat the child
remarkably stayed asleep
and slept a bit more
