in the smallest acts

there is a bowl outside our door
and many of our little friends
drop in during the course of a day
to splash around
or take a well deserved drink

on those days the bowl has run dry
and i realize i have forgotten
to fill it up
and i catch the look of disappointment
on a squirrels face
i am beside myself with sadness
and i quickly run to the kitchen
and dash to the bowl
and fill it up

and within a few minutes
everything is ok again
and the squirrel drinks and scampers off
looking for nuts.

and all is well.
