Proficient: A Squirrel

Moving along

proficient with acrobatic flight

the squirrel jumps in the trees

entertaining all in sight


Time for an adventure

he shouts to his friends

time to search for treats

near the park’s end


There it is

the feeder is in site

each takes a position

ready for the fight


Coming in all directions

there is a battle cry

meeting in the center

the feeder is not high


An unexpected visitor

a hawk appears

taking a dive

he is quite near


Scurrying to the left

another to the right

proficient with speed

moving out of sight


Returning to the park

running and taking heed

safely tucked in nest

without any bird seed
