Rain is their robe, in meagre solitude and earth is the dark<br />
deep silence of things<br />
where you dream yourself<br />
human, alive<br />
watching the red deer running<br />
on the wall of a cave<br />

Rain is their robe, in meagre solitude

and earth is the dark
deep silence of things
where you dream yourself
human, alive
watching the red deer running
on the wall of a cave

The red deer is one of the largest deer species. Depending on taxonomy, the red deer inhabits most of Europe, the Caucasus Mountains region, Asia Minor, parts of western Asia, and central Asia. It also inhabits the Atlas Mountains region between Morocco and Tunisia in northwestern Africa, being the only species of deer to inhabit Africa.
