NaPoWriMo 18 – Spring Squirrels

I see that the young spring squirrels are here.

Darting at each other, and then springing clear

It’s the baby squirrels coming to learn

Who will get to eat first, and who waits a turn


Bark is flying while the branches swing

Height to them doesn’t, seem to mean a thing

They jump around not afraid to fall

Silly young children, not caring at all


Then mom comes out and is claiming her zone

When she gives a threat, she will be left alone

They don’t understand why she is so rough

But soon they will learn, her reasons to be tough


As they take their place away from home

In a tree of nuts that, will be their own

And then they raise their own little kin

So the cycle begins, yet once again.
