The Small Squirrel

350. The Small Squirrel

she was a small squirrel

and the road was lightly traveled

she ran to the middle

then saw me and stopped

I slowed my car

grateful for no traffic

she darted farther across

then spun around

and headed back

toward the safer side

where she had started

I stopped the car

she froze

in the middle of the road

shaking in confusion

she pulled herself together

as squirrels will do

looked once at me

then turned and

resolutely walked

ahead of me down the road

in the middle of my lane

I smiled and let her

slowly lead the way

and thought how often

I have ached to do the same

let go the choosing

and walk the center line
