Window Wonders

26 May

From the Heart

Louise Gibson

 

 

 

My kitchen window overlooks my patio.
It affords me an excellent view.
I observe the antics of my animal friends
while cooking, perhaps a stew.

 

My window wonders this week
have become a bit disturbing.
What used to be a heartwarming scene
has become very disconcerting.

 

I have a most unusual guest
who really is quite rude.
He appears uninvited at meal time
and devours all the food.

 

Lord, I need your help-
I really don’t want to be mean.
But that cute raccoon is gaining weight,
while my cats are looking lean.

 

I said he is cute because
his habits are disarming-
He picks up his food with his “hands”-
I must confess he is charming!

 

I take out fresh water for my cats,
but our visitor is quite pristine!
You see, he “washes” his food in it-
He is the original “Mr. Clean”.

 

And Lord, you see the other problem, too, I know-
How he trashes up my patio?
I get so tired of using my broom,
I moved the garbage can to the utility room.

 

Lord, I have a question, please-
“Was this your plan from the start,
to put me “under pressure”
to tenderize my heart?”
