Multiple Choice Haiku

Frequently Mars and I come upon one of our gray squirrels sitting upright on its haunches at the top of the topmost branch on our flowering crab tree and staring Zen-like into space. My mind, which is always active although not necessarily full of thoughts, cannot believe that the brain of the tree rodent is not equally busy.

Multiple Choice Haiku

What do squirrels think,
perched in tree-top Buddha pose?

(a) Food. Food. Food. Sex. Food.

(b) Really, it’s nothing!

(c) Where IS that acorn?

(d) All of the above.

(e) None of the above.
