Just Another Magnificent Sunday

photo by Markus Spiske
We saw two gray squirrels mating 
in our neighbor’s magnolia 

                       An ariel affair 

Tree branches shivering  
A candle flame 

                        in the heat 

They seemed so ordinary—who knew? 
Here, in the Northeast, 

                        making babies in the air!
