[Last weekend our area got clobbered by a snowstorm that caused many of us in Englewood, NJ, to hunker down at home rather than risk the not so benign elements outside.
For a lark I donned the persona of a lonely bush-tailed creature navigating tentatively the treacherous terrain below my vantage point at the first-floor dining room window.
I put it to you – was I squirreling away or squandering my time?]
I’M A LUCKY SNOWED-IN SQUIRREL
THAT ATTAINS SEVENTH HEAVEN
Saturday noon catches me snowbound.
Up a welcoming tree trunk
I scurry from the icy ground –
All that white stuff leave I behind.
To be frank, I’ve had enough!
I scuttle around and around and finally find
m’self a cozy nook high up
in a crook of the gnarléd bark:
It beckons me
away from the cold biting wind
to seek in its embrace a quiet haven.
I snuggle anon in Nature’s well-crafted bower,
And ere long a blessed clearing in the sky
Allows the sun’s warming rays to wash o’er me:
Ere long I’m basking in Seventh Heaven.
You number over 65,000 since 2 years ago in January 2015, when I first began to put “some of my thoughts, written down” and posted them in the blogosphere. Since that time, many of you have urged me to seek support of my site and my writings by way of donations.
My blog is about my life. It’s about what I’ve learned through the span of my life. It’s about things I love, and things I know and things I have experienced. I am humbled that so many of you want to join with me in my reflections. If you like what you find here, if it inspires or informs or amuses you, then I am content.
