Nature Around Us


His soft chocolate eyes

gaze at the colors.

Silently, he watches

the speeding metal fly by.

His interest piques.

He steps from the safety

of the dense forest

That is his home.


to the concrete

and hues.

Standing on wobbly legs

only 18 inches high.

Newborn spots

still visible

on his tan coat.

Where is mother?

I know she told you

to stay put,

til She got back

with food.

Hurry mama!

For he knows not,

the dangers

Of the blurred steel.
