Bearded Squirrel

            Seven years from now a bearded squirrel looking like Rasputin glares at me from atop a fence post along the canal. Yes, the same canal I walk along now. He scolds me saying, ‘Why are you here? What have you done, it’s been seven years?’ I just look at him and shake my head because I too can see the past and say, ‘You think it’s easy? You up on your high post from your future vantage point?’ I spit on the grass in front of the post to make my point. I know as well as him what the future holds and am content with it, for I will have looked back on it that seven years ago and I tell him, ‘The world will know of you!’ I turn and walk into the future.


  1. I've never done well with spirit guides. Spent one summer talking to the neighbor's cat. Never heard a peep out of it.

    1. Ha! It's all in your mind anyway. :) One of my cats is acting very weird the last week or so....thinking maybe he's possessed by squirrels or something.

  2. Very nice Kenny! I'm afraid I too am possessed by a squirrely spirit as well
