Crazy cottontail,
spinning in the desert,
running in circles
in snow
mixed with rain.

Must be happy,
back and forth.

of the world
eating again.

  1. Those last four liners:perfect!

  2. Bouncing with life and energy, glad to be alive. You bring her to life on the page.

  3. I think ‘Beeseeker’ has it right: those last four lines bring an unexpected observation, and true to life.

  4. Ethel, I really enjoyed this – it’s profound and charming, sweet and powerful. Made me both smile (at the imagery) and then contemplate its truth and wisdom!
