Squirrels Climbing

I’m amazed
At the sheer skill
Of squirrels

The tallest trees
With ease,
One paw at a time,

Leaping from
Bough to bough
With no regard
For gravity.

On the feeder pole
They place one leg here,
One leg there,
Clinging like a squid

While rustling
Breakfast, brunch,
And supper

It seems silly
To admire them
Just for being squirrels,
But I did.
