Explore: The Squirrel

squirrel eating grass in park march


He is a traveler

roaming the woods free

exploring all aspects of life

beginning at a tree


Ears perched high

his tail curled round

seeing a free meal

he runs unbound


First nuts from a tree

his cheeks are full

little teeth grinding

from the nut he pulls


Scampering on

running across the fence

eyeing a bird feeder

his gaze intense


Slowly at first

then to a full open run

he steals some seed

before the sound of a gun


Running rapidly

he escapes in the field

joined by others

with the bird seed yield


Returning to the park

he is in protected land

living in the moment

life is grand
