It’s raining outside and I feel content to just sit on the porch and watch a squirrel snag a slice of pizza from a trash can The weight is too great and it falls in but this is one determined squirrel A Moliére tale about a piece of string intersects my thought but that’s arbitrary after a few tumbles and false starts; the squirrel gets the pizza out of the trash can. It did seem like a lot of work for a stale slice of pizza but who am I to judge?

What is just a stale slice of pizza can mean the world to somebody else.I admire that little squirrel for being brave and determined And for sleeping witha full stomach ??.Love your poetry.

That squirrel shows how if we as humans show determination regardless of how others may view our desires- we can succeed. Love the ending.

They are all determined squirrels. I am glad someone else knows about them...

thank you, the squirrels and the wild hare running around my old yard always inspire me.
