Day 57 Woodpeckers — Haibun Journey View From My Window

From my window the trees are a flurry of activity. Two squirrels chase each other around the trunk of the maple, while another feasts on a walnut in a branch above them. I downey woodpecker feasts at the suet feeder nailed to the pecan tree. High in the ash a pileated woodpecker bobs his head in time with his rat-a-tat-tat. I think about how blessed I am to live in a land with so much abundance.
