Rodento is a pal o' mine
he sits atop a tree,
an extra to the foliage,
a natural topiary.

I named him 'cos he looks so real,
a critter with a snout,
a wiry tail part of his trunk,
some whiskers, and a pout.

He greets me every morning 
when I take my cup of tea,
as I stroll out on the balcony
I swear he's watching me.

When gentle breezes shake the tree
the varmint darts and dances,
but what if stronger winds persist
pray then, what be his chances?

What if a hurricane blows through?
he might well disappear,
surrendered to the elements,
then I would shed a tear.

    Now Keith, you never confessed what Rodento is. I would have said a male rat but they don't climb trees. May lose slep tonight with not knowing. Clever critter though! :)

    aw, I'm a nature lover myself, I enjoyed your poem so much this morning, I used to have a cottage where I had my coffee, and go out before the break to listen and look at the birds. There were a pair of black squirrels, small, with alot of energy, one young man wanted a squirrel farm.hahahaha~ I just love poetry that is serene, and you are my last read~ today~ :) take care, and God bless, Cindy
