after finding a tiny baby mole
who has died
along the side of the road
the kids say a few words on its behalf
and place it in the soft leaves of the woods
as a kind and gentle memorial gesture.
“when children come into contact with nature, they reveal their strength.”
the neighbors stopped by to check us out
“when strangers start acting like neighbors… communities are reinvigorated.”
kinder take a closer look at the wooly sheep’s children
before they come over
to feel the human childrens’ gentle touch.
“any glimpse into the life of an animal quickens our own
and makes it so much the larger and better in every way.”

An adorable Shiba Inu named Ken-kun in Hokkaido, Japan remarkably runs his own sweet potato stand.
The watchful dog politely tends to whatever the customer needs, however, he is not able to accept payment. That situation is solved with a slot in which to put the money.
Customers need to have the exact amount (or be willing to leave the rest), as a sign on the front of the stand reads:
“Because I am a dog, I can’t give you change.”
“the dog lives for the day, the hour, even the moment.”

the kinders made a wonderful house for rocket the turtle,
with many rooms and spaces,
including his very own garden and library.
“until he extends his circle of compassion to include all living things,
man will not himself find peace.”
w is for?
my friend’s dogs on a friday night.
the vet said about one,
“she’s just not very athletic.”
“current position: tired from the human race.”

one of my daughter’s long-legged black cats
who i collectively refer to as ‘the nathans,’
enjoying a swing.
as of this posting,
he has never expressed a desire to be a dancer.
“just because you have long legs doesn’t mean you’ll be happy as a rockette.”
