One Regret

a partially hidden mule deer doe looks through the brush and into the camera in this black and white toned image from the Bosque del Apache

One regret, dear world,
That I am determined not to have
When I am lying on my deathbed
Is that
I did not kiss you enough.


What regret are you determined not to hold as you pass from one world into another? From life to death? From a world without, and now infused with Covid?

Taken on the eve of my birthday, and just as the pandemic was taking hold.
