The Start of Wisdom - Sept. 7, 2022

the rabbit stops feeding

so close to me

a sudden statue

thin green blades

stick to a white chest

and dead clinging grass

the makeup of her back


she’s bigger now growing fast

possibly a teenager

always the age

that defies authority

her mother’s words


always always run

when you see them!


but today she is

defiant and foolish

standing her ground


as we walk by I see

the coiled thigh muscles

relax into an arch of soft fur


and perhaps the hint

of a smirk that cocky

smile of the young


which someday

maybe sooner maybe later

will flee with her legs

in a death dash to safety

her place

mama’s place


home
