I Watch The Squirrels Fight

I Watch The Squirrels Fight~ Photos by Patrice

I watch the squirrels fight 
edging out one another 
for a place at the feeder 
for
just another bite. 

Sometimes
there’s a truce 

Sometimes
a bitter fight 

Sometimes
a lone squirrel 
eats
til he feels suffice. 

Birds keep their distance 
stay out of the fight 
they wait their turn 
a time when
all others have had their fill 

All’s quiet 

No more anger 

No more strife.
