Can't Put the Pen Down…

This I Understand

The world rushes by
every crisis jockeying
for my attention.

The clock claps its hands
to get my attention and
scoot me out the door.

Everyone has plans
that require my presence
except for the moose.

Outside my window
a moose browses willow buds.
This I understand.

  1. What an elegant mouse grazing outside your window, and this I can understand. Nice photograph and poem.

  2. Wow! That’s an impressive Moose! Bit bigger than mine?!

    • Actually, she was just an adolescent, probably about 400 pounds. They get around 800 pounds (for a cow) or 1000 to 1200 pounds for a male around here. I think she just looked bigger in the picture.

    Great! looking at that photo, I can see why you were inspired to pick the pen up! We once saw a Bambi-like deer in out garden eating an apple, which wasn’t quite as magical as your moose, but what it lacked in grandeur it sort of made up for in cuteness 🙂
