nearly scampering

across my feet, a squirrel

in flight from a cat

living – even in the wild

never without challenges

For Tanka Tuesday where the prompt words over at Colleens are synonyms for Life & Move


move… fly (flight)

I used Living & Flight.. I know, “flight might be reaching a little🙂

This is/was my strawberry patch that lost it wooden planter box (it sort of disintergrated as I tried to move it). The root system fell intact, and I left it where it fell in late fall. The plan is to put it in the ground if it survives, come spring.

Spring came to visit in the heart of winter, and so did a cat. He was just sitting there! Atop my strawberry bush, refusing to let me disturb his peace. He didn’t stir, even with the noise of opening the door.

Lesson Learned:

Don’t let anyone disturb your peace!!


I’ve been trying to get a proper shot of this fire pit for a while. By now I’m pretty sure the owners of the house thinks I am casing the joint. My first shots were with my phone. Not so good. So I went back with my camera:)

Early days of spring. A visitor, hanging out in my yard, on top of MY table,  getting some sun.
Unmoved by the click of the shutter of the camera
He looked around, peered at me and again closed his eyes.
We did not know each other but he was clearly enjoying the
warmth of the sun too much to be moved.
