Watching You

Watching You

written by: Nancy Lou Henderson



Running, leaping, dancing on
the electric line,
watching, praying you will be fine.
Straddling, clinging, sleeping on the branch of a tree,
wondering, questioning if you see me.
Flipping, rushing, fleeing from a Mockingbird,
laughing, knowing that you heard.
Digging, covering, patting the ground,
loving, seeing, as you look around.
Jumping, straddling, holding on to the feeder,
smiling, waiting for a wobble or teeter.
Sitting, looking, observing the world,
praying, hoping if you are my squirrel.
