Noble Truths

by Houkje

On a mid August bike ride in Maryland, I had a brief encounter with a buck. We passed each other Antlers in the velvet stagealong the Northeast Branch trail near the College Park airport.

His antlers, in the early morning sun, were glistening. A soft layer of velvety fuzz encompassed them, revealing his stage of development. Softness covered bone, the outside layer of vulnerability masking great strength within.

Our eyes met and there was a mutual understanding between us as I slowed my bike to savor the moment.

I am here, Prince of these woods,” he proclaimed.

I bowed down before his magical presence, filling with gratitude for the brief exchange. Those velvet antlers are imprinted in my mind’s eye… a reminder of the noble places within my own soul.
