Robert K. Johnson


Getting into
the spirit of things,

a squirrel admires
our backyard's
pumpkin decoration

a mouthful
at a time.

So I'm not the only one with critters chewing on the pumpkin on my porch! A well-written miniature poem!

Halloween is all about the squirrels! For sure. They all think they've died and gone to heaven here in Illinois, Robert! (Would like to show a few of them the way.)
