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
