More Window Wonders

24 May

My kitchen window

Never fails to excite my inner core.

Each tiny glimpse of nature

Whets my appetite for more

The behavior of the animal life

Is utterly absurd

The birds are eating the cat’s food

And a cat is acting like a bird.

Two cranes are walking slowly

Pecking down at the ground for food.

The cats are watching quietly

As is to disturb them would be rude!

I keep my camera by my window

To capture moments such as this

A cat is drinking from the birdbath

The absurdity is bliss.

    fuonlyknew, I am so glad that you, too, enjoy your kitchen window sightings. I don’t believe that I have ever encountered a Prairie Vole. I’ll have to look that one up for study.

    Isn’t nature grand. Never know what you’ll see out your window.
    I discovered a rodent living in the tall weeds along my fence. At first I thought it was a large mouse or rat. Then I noticed it hopped instead of walked and sat up and held its food in its little paws while eating. Kind of like a squirrel, chipmunk, rabbit thing. After much research I found out it is a Prairie Vole. I now feed them since they are harmless to my lawn and home. So cute and they are all sizes. It’s funny to see them hopping around.
    My kitchen window is popular, as all guests have to see them. Much better than sitting in front of the TV!

      Animal life , especially those in my own yard, keeps me busy feeding therm. I adopted eight cats that were born in my utility shed during Hurricane Charlie. “Big Momma” takes excellent care of her “kids”, always grooming them and, amusingly, swatting therm if they don’t behave. A racoon recently interrupted the tranquility of the scene by eating the cats’ food and rummaging through my garbage can for dessert, usually leaving a mess for me to clean up. H-m-m, that could be the subject for another poem. : – )
