Haiku #2: Reluctant squirrel

baby squirrel won’t jump
from redwood branch to roof
ma squirrel throws him

One thought on “Haiku #2: Reluctant squirrel

  1. I read these three haiku to your father who was lying in his hospital bed…and when I read this one and he smiled and said, “I can see the images!”….and so he could as he was there beside you when you both witnessed this frustrated mother squirrel who had three times demonstrated how to jump across….and finally gave up and threw said baby squirrel across the abyss. Thanks for sharing words that conjured up such a treasured shared memory. Hugs, Mom
