About zongrik

For those of you who do not know the handle "zongrik," that would be Bat-Ami Gordin. Most people call me "Tammy." Bat-Ami means "daughter of my nation" in Hebrew. It's a heavy name to carry around. I answer to either name. I also answer to "mama." Some Basic Things about me: Animal lover, mom, poet/writer, dramatic soprano, photographer, teacher/tutor, CERT/Technician and, oh yeah, aerospace engineer. I consider myself "The Astro-Poet." To learn more about the origins of the word "zongrik" see whats-a-zongrik?

  1. That’s quite a collection of interesting words to describe these beautiful creatures.
    Thanks for linking to Real Toads Photo Challenge.

  2. I’d call this poetic simplicity: vivid imagery in so few words. Especially love the last line. Very nice, Tammy!

  3. Yes, we are so happy to see the young deer at different times of year, to know the herd is healthy and the species continuing.

  4. Nice capture of the simple life ~ They are beautiful creatures ~

  5. I feel dictionary challenged by your marvelous vocabulary…a beautiful peace!

  6. ha! As easy as that. Species continued. 🙂

  7. smiles…i’m glad it’s not like this in our species…smiles…but really well captured tammy..

  8. “sweaty lovemaking exercise
    species: continued”

    Ha! That was hilarious. 🙂

  9. Love the weave of your words capturing those elusive neighbors – dear deer indeed.

  10. A celebration of instinct over conscious act, and of young plain life, nicely done

  11. glad my love making is more than just the continuation of the species you know…ha…but i see the deer in the back yard all the time…nice to see this at dVerse

  12. Love the simplicity and beauty, even the sweaty lovemaking exercise made me smile. Do deer sweat too? haha… very nice work

  13. I liked the flow of “monotonically plebian / wholesome honesty” and the symmetrical connection between the second line, “healthy simplism,” and the second-to-last line, “sweaty lovemaking exercise”

  14. Seems so simple, doesn’t it? We humans make such a mess of it all!

  15. that was cool. love the opening line here, as for me, it’s like the intro scene in some films, which then goes onto an earlier point, foreshadowing what will be. really nice progression. Fine write. Thanks

  16. You described their being-ness so well. They just do what comes naturally.
