haiku - belonging

in the woods -
the squirrels run
towards me


I also belong here.

What a nice thing to have happen. Squirrels get flustered or friendly?

Nice - a real sense of them greeting you, welcoming you into their world.

Wonderful! (though I've had both happy squirrels coming toward me, and a squirrel that tried to mug me for my breakfast on my honeymoon! - he'd figured out that tourists come from the bakery with good things to eat, and if he could startle them, they often dropped some.)

There is something about kindred spirits! Thank you.

Nice, though I'd personally prefer the squirrels to run away from me. :)

Hi Crafty! I love how you're in the squirrels' world in the woods, and that they run out to greet you and welcome you. This is really beautiful!
