Fluffy Tailed Acrobats

Fluffy tailed performers
Chitter chatter among themselves
No one listening, everyone slathering
Juicy gossip 

Taking daring fifteen foot leaps and dives
From magnificent heights, barely landing on
Tiny branches.

Flinging themselves with wild abandon
And oodles of faith into the air, flipping and
Swirling. Contortionists.

Sliding up trunks the way others slide down.
Landing with a well-earned acorn in their jaws.

I've a gazillion of them in my yard; every year, they get my pears as soon as the peek out of the green; I haven't had any pears since one built his nest in a tree and invited friends and family. Oh well, they have to eat, too. That's the way it goes.

We have four gigantic squirrel nests high in our yard, and I think each nest houses a colony of them.
