Flash Fiction 55 -- Little Grey Squirrel -- Open Link Monday

 [click on picture for larger view-click again for larger still]
 
Little Grey Squirrel, Stopped 
 
Little grey Squirrel, stopped on my back porch
He wants to see what he can see from there
 
Was a brown dog out back, ready to bark
I know he'd like to chase me up his tree
 
Where's the calico kitten's milk today
She always shares her milk with me, my friend

Today I am liked with Fireblossom at the Real Toads, Flash Fiction 55 (Link)
She said this for instructions: "...write a poem or a piece of flash fiction in exactly fifty-five words, no more, no less. Any subject; children, shoes, nervous breakdowns, whatever..."

I would love to see a squirrel on my back porch - no such luck in my part of the world. I'm more likely to find a hyrax.

I was given a squirrel tail by a former classmate when I was around ten-year old, Dr & Mrs Jim :)

Gentle. I've not thought of squirrels this way. But I will try to be more empathetic.

we have a lot of squirrels around my house Jim!! we use to regularly put out food and water for themm... a time came when they were not even scared to come close but soon a stray tabby learned there new eating place and started eating them up .. i saw him gulping down one leaving behind only a tail... since weve stopped keeping food for them... theyre still around and feed from tree nuts and all but not so many any more!! :(

A kitty who shares her milk, what a lucky squirrel!

This put such a smile on my face. Thanks a bunch, Jim. ;-)

Great picture and well worked words.

Thanks for visiting. I could not see your other sight but maybe later.

I am a collector. I use some pieces in art and some just for looking. I can't imagine not picking up an old piece of something when I see it. It's a bad habit I enjoy.

nice snapshot, Jim. i'd like to be at war with our squirrels over the birdfeeder, but they're so damn cute and attentive. hard to be annoyed with them. :)

I was so enthralled with the black squirrels in Northern Michigan… Do squirrels really drink milk? ha…
