A Wildlife Sanctuary

A wild turkey
high steps through the rain,
his head bob, bob, bobs.

A funny creature,
he circles my backyard
past two brown bunnies

jumping over each other.
A groundhog wobbles
by the knockout roses,

two babies trailing her.
Five deer appear like ghosts
and nibble verdant grass.

Fog lifts from the mountains,
fireflies flicker high in poplar trees
and put on a night show.

Sometimes I have four squirrels in my yard eating maple seeds. Now and then a bunny might nibble on plants. Wildlife is so interesting to watch isn't it.

How blessed you are to sit back in your recliner with a hot cup of tea, and see this parade of wildlife march past your window.
