a moth’s aflutter
zig zags, a cantankerous
mocking bird in tow
as they head to the meadow
gap closes, this will not end well

A mocking bird has been nesting in my small tree. She has been very vigilant about making a ruckus whenever anyone, or anything goes near her nest. The squirrel she was chasing around last week has moved! Now there’s this cat!
