Of course this is not about squirrels.  I am grateful particular crises reach a settling point.  Now that one thing is pretty much settled, I can see the squirrels again, my beloved can put out food for the birds, and the daughter can go to dinner with a friend.  I am also grateful for codeine cough medicine which has finally calmed the cough... and I can see those squirrels.

I can see the squirrels again.
They leap from pillar to post
Onto a particular tree branch
In the back yard.
Now I can focus
On squirrels
Once more.
With everyone finally home
On vacation
We can each focus
On our own separate version
Of squirrel.
