Springtime Bunny©

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 . . .

Got it!

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!😬🤓

Thank you for reading! Follow the blog here👈 for more.

In creative solidarity, Dee
