3 Micropoems about wild animals (and feral cat leads)
Cats can be wild; they’re known as feral
You either see them or you don’t
It’s possible to befriend them
Especially when they’re in trouble
Cats love company
Coyote are misleading, looking like dogs
They sound like catastrophe
Chiming in when sundown begins
Often when seen, they’re starving or sick
They’re canines, but not wolves or dogs
Across the prairie cottontails hop
Into the woodland too, then along
Creeks and in marshes swamp rabbits live;
Hear a rustle, take a look—you’ll see them
Hopping along, skittering in leaves
These are just a few of the wild animals I see—each of great significance that feels like “double-blessing” (as they say).
Please refer to further reading, below, to learn more about how to recognize and assist feral cats when needed.
