backyard zen

zen squirrel on Saturday morning, 9:24 a.m.

zen squirrel this morning on the backyard swing-set

this is why I keep it, even though my sons are grown

for zen squirrel, and the smile the squirrels bring me when they play and when they plop to rest

they are going to miss the old dead maple tree for acrobatic jumps and escapades

I will miss the maple’s shade, and cherish the memories made the past two decades
