Signaling in metaphor

                   
I’ve seen it out of the comer of my eye; 
It had no legs and looked to be shinny;
The last time I saw it was on the patio looking like a scrub jay;
I remember a silver napkin ring disappeared that day.
What is it?
Today it looked like a reptile; 
Before it looked like a foul;
And Here come’s pretty blue eyes;
Right behind it all as usual;
What’s going on here anyway?

    Sounds like an eerie critter, Leonard. Maybe "pretty blue eyes" was the culprit? Or might have been the one chasing it away. Not sure "what's going on", if I could, I'd send our nosey bird to check it out...you'd be just as confused..lol Best wishes, Mikki
