The Backyard Circus


a squirrel feeder

a small-bird-feeder

within a friendly distance


squirrels acrobat on, at, along the bird-turf

bunnies circle round and round beneath the squirrel food supplier

small birds peck on what’s left on the squirrel ground from before

a cardinal, too large for the bird feeder, dances with grace and hope for left-overs

crows, inching closer and closer, hope for yet another feeder

the chipmunk opts for a hiding spot

knows my decorative stones

mean peace
