The squirrel climbed the tree

Carrying a bundle of grass,

Roots still entact.

Nesting? Gardening??

Looking for a home, or just decorating?

The squirrel descended the tree,

Still carrying the bundle of grass.


With all this talk of decluttering our lives,

Maybe we need to de- nest instead

And realize 

The whole world is our home.

(Special thanks to Judy Hunt for the word de-nest)
