April Prompts #25 HOARDINGS
Kari’s #3: people with animal or insect characteristics
Under the eaves,
in an abandoned robin’s nest,
a flying squirrel stashes mushrooms.
Chipmunks carry acorns,
sunflower seeds, kernels of corn
to hoard in their holes under the garage.
in the mitten basket,
behind the cookbooks.
Between the rafters
piled in fiberglass nests.
In the freezer,
blueberries and broccoli,
applesauce and greens.
On the shelves,
jars of pickles, pails of honey,
bottles of water, cans of beans.
