Blessed are ye, that hunger now: for ye shall be filled. Blessed are ye that weep now: for ye shall laugh...St. Luke 6:21
---------------------------
The Eastern Chipmunk

Is born strong willed,

Along with spunk...

Awake from hiberation,

When hunger urges

She has determination

To be filled....

She quickly emerges~

Leaving the dark,

Confines of her burrow...

She embraces the sunlight

And traces its shadow,

Sweeping o'er the tree's bark.

She knows everything

In her kingdom is alright...

She can now laugh

In natures behalf

To welcome spring....
Poetry by me AJP
------------------------
I shot the picture of this little Chipmunk late this afternoon using manual focus through the window..The shadow on the tree I shot in our woods a few days ago. I can see the similarities in the colors and texture of the bark that match the Chipmunk's fur and decided to put this in a diptych....
