Just one question- will it be
Tails or heads today?
This haiku is a much-needed break from the creepy that I’ve been writing for October. I’ve taken to the disturbing stories a little too well and it scares me! I just want to make sure I keep a tether to the softer side 😛
We have a tree in our yard that the squirrels call home. Many times I walk by it and see some sort of squirrel activity. Funny, though… when the kids run by, the squirrels disappear. (Smart animals!)
For the longest time, I’d only see a little head poking out, wide eyes staring, making sure I wouldn’t take another step closer. One day, I laughed when I saw our tree had a tail. Unfortunately, all I had was my cell phone for that photo. (Or, taking the glass-half-full approach: thank goodness I had my cell phone with me so I could catch the photo op.)
In observing the squirrels over several weeks, I discovered that unlike a coin toss where we have to pick heads or tails, sometimes in nature, we don’t have to choose. I finally captured a photo of the entire camera shy squirrel. I swear he/she has the longest tail I’ve seen on the squirrels around here!
Have a marvelous Monday!!
