This week's words:

Curious; Inevitable; Wary


Too Many Choices

Squirrel struggles so
with the way of the branches
he must travel on.
They fork left while he
wants right, go up - he wants down.
Though curious, he's
become so wary -
and it's inevitable
that he should scold me
since it is my tree
after all and the cat is
also mine for sure.

When the noon sun shines
just so and the leaves rustle
in some right key, then
squirrel remembers
how it was those happy days
when there were no cats
nor any stupid
dogs however sweet they are
when even dumber
humans throw their sticks.

It's hard to guard the places
where he's hid his nuts
when it's time to nap.

  6. Great little piece! True in many instances. One gets disturbed for no apparent reason! Nicely Chris!
