An Unexpected Encounter

A curve in the path
opens into a
clearing.

A coyote and I
lock eyes
surprised
to be standing
two feet apart.

After our mutual
"oh my" moment
we look away
then depart
in opposite directions.

We check
over our shoulders
to see that
the other species
continues
to retreat
until we are too far
apart
to see each others eyes.
