“safe from harm”

The following is a poem by Godistricksy.  I adore the squirrels that dash around our yard and hang upside down to grab seeds from the birdfeeders.  They taunt the neighbor’s cat but play nice with the birds and doves who come to share the back yard bounty.  Hope you enjoy his poem as well.

     safe from harm

i spent

a lazy afternoon

watching squirrels

treedancing.

 

quicknimble

treerats.

thosesilverflashes

quickentrancing.

 

running corkscrew

rings around ringed

trees flush

with verdant spring,

 

stopping only

to scratch an itch

or watch a plump

pigeon snoozing.

 

i wish

i was a squirrel.

tree dancing.

safe from bombsandcarsandknivesandguns.

 

a silver flash

in the canopy,

watching plump

pigeons snoozing.
