The Squirrel

Sitting atop the barren earth - frozen,
islands of snow all around, 
    a gray tailed squirrel, in search of a snack, 
scratches the cold, winter ground. 

I tried to capture a photo of this,
but the squirrel was too clever for me.
By the time I retrieved my camera,
like my children, he (too) did flee.  

Funny thing is, same time the next day,
he returned to the very same spot.
Unfortunately, my dog saw him, too
"Strike a pose", my squirrel friend did not.
