Law of Nature

Across the garden

Yards from the house

A tiny bright-eyed field mouse

Reaches

Repeatedly

For the last few berries

Hanging low from the hedge

Throwing caution

To the chilly winter wind

It inches

Upwards

Branches shaking

Berries bouncing

Speckled wings flurry

Quick beak is blurry

And the berries are gone

Stuff 136
