the simple life of a squirrel

sitting here
on a park bench
in Washington Square Park
with the flowers out 
in full bloom

watching the pretty young girls walking by
watching  the gray squirrels running about
looking for nuts
they scurry about on the grassy lawns
sometimes running into each other

when finding something they believe special
they separate from the crowd
with their prize
and tuck it away
in a secret place

and then back to the hunt
only later to return to the prize
to  claim it
not to flaunt it 
but to consume it to survive

and then back to the hunt

    so cute. They are fun to watch. Reminds me of that squirrel on Ice age always chasing the giant nut!
