Today's little ditty... well... my original plan was to head off to the library and find the perfect poem in celebration of Earth Day. To be sure, there is a lot to celebrate about our beautiful planet! But, as luck would have it, I saw a squirrel get hit by an SUV on my morning walk. As I used a stick to gingerly move it to the side of the road (no sense in letting another car add insult to injury), I thought about this poor creature as a reflection of Mother Earth herself, and thus this poem was born. It's a little darker than what I would typically like to post here, but I hope you can appreciate the optimism.
