It’s spring time
I’m abounding with joy
There’s a cute little bunny that drops by the garden each spring
He’s an elusive frisky little fella
Ears always at attention, pointed straight up to sky like soldier resolute to flight, not fight
At best I’ve managed only to stare longingly at “His Royal Cuteness”
Face pressed up against the window pane, I stare intently
In fear, that even a flutter of my eyelashes and he’ll bow out
This is the year
Armed and ready I am
I’ll not concede or give in on this relentless pursuit
This is the spring where he’ll capitulate
Yielding to the will of my intent
Surrendering his whim of flight for a moment long enough for—
Aim . . .
Shoot . . .
The shot I’ve been pursuing in spring times past
My spring time bunny visitor
Forever captured and frozen in a moment in time, behind bars
There’s a first time for everything. And, this is my first response to another blogger’s prompt at the advice of fellow blogger Ben over at the Skeptics Kaddish on how to increase my footprint on the blog scene.
So I came across Fandango’s One Word Challenge. Today’s word is “capitulate”, to write anything or even use photos—no holds barred. And, to use #FOWC in the post. So, here goes … hope this works!😬🤓
