Long life
Longer years in the life
Classy, sassy
Full of wit and wisdom

Stood up straighter
Enjoyed a smoke
End of the line
For the greater

I love your vignette under the bird feeder-- I can relate but the larger being is a brown squirrel instead of a rabbit.

Tiny, delicate little baby
Eyes closed sleeping peacefully
Bundle in a cocoon blanket
A little hand; fist closed
Off to the side
Dark hair that may fall out
Her tiny nose breathes in and out
We talk; she doesn’t stir
Still waiting to her eyes
But she continues to sleep
The newest addition for great grandma

Looking like he had eaten
suet all winter, the Robin
resembled the Dove more
than madam Red Breast.
The rabbit was a modest
adult, but still sizeable
compared with the bird.
The battleground was
the area under the feeder,
dotted whitely with safflower.
There were no actual
blows, but the two
feinted left and right,
punching the air between
them, without inflicting
damage but offering
fright one to the other.
While there was no
clear winner, my
money was on Peter.
He has bigger teeth,
if he could figure out
how to use them.
