Scrub-jay ruckus

Blue-jays arrived in the West

To build a nearby nest 

Using their natural defense 

They take turns on their descent 

Tormenting my pet

From the safety of the fence 

It’s  quite an event

To witness

Serenity Found

image

She set out to cross the country
Over treacherous mountain ranges
With a manageable, steady gait
Covered over thirty miles each day
Till she found her final destination
A serene place she wanted to stay

Climbing up to the plateaus edge
Pictured the view and took a look
Clean, untouched forest for a den
Padded to a nearby babbling brook
Forepaws sunk in cool, wet earth
Thirst abated, a joyous pelt shook
