What do squirrels do all day?

Looking out the window I am able to witness with curious eyes,
those “little rats with cute outfits” that all they do is run.

Are they competing while they gather? The most nuts wins the prize?
Are they playing up and down the trees like kiddos at a park?

But they barely seem to stop, unless staring at stranger…
Although ignoring than from a window, a stranger spies completely jealous.

Maybe the stranger is procrastinating on her many life to-dos.
And the squirrel’s playful freedom, she would want to have for sure.

They live rent -free and their organic food, just doesn’t break the bank.
Their job is cut out for them and they don’t interview to have a chance.

Agile they run around, when the stranger often lacks…
the motivation to get on a treadmill and get some exercise.

But now it is when I remember that nature has wired us all,
to take care of one another with unique skills and roles.

I may not be frolicking, free around the grass…
But I am able to write this poem and freely laugh at large,
at my silly life comparisons when work is not that fun 🙂

About julianamartinezfajardo

To make the disclamer that I am indeed a professional writer, would be a big fat lie. To share my life adventures in writing and make you want to keep reading is a better way to illustrate how the lenses of my bi-cultural, bi-racial, bi-lingual life will draw you in. Living a "dual" life is an interesting proposition after all. It is my writing how I choose to engage with the world and document it for my loved ones...while managing to get a smile out of you. If while reading my blog, you in fact smile, laugh uncontrollably and dry the tears of joy from your eyes, drop me a line. It will make my day. Gracias visitante.
