The Bayou by the Home in the Woods

Dusk, the rain stops, mist drifts over the bayou. In thin darkness, white-tailed deer appear, graze at the edge of woods. A crow on a branch caws and flaps away. The sun, out of sight for the whole day, reemerges to emit its last radiance, and feeling the chill, the old man rises from the porch rocker and moves slowly into the house.
