Ancient Floor, Man and the squirrel

Racing up and down, from top to rock bottom, rock sculptures, leisure strolls on floor.

Floor.…….made of rock, depicts the story of glorious past.

No fancy tiling, no carpeting, no shine yet sparkling

Uneven, uncut, grainy, unpolished, solid, uncanny feelingDSC_9147

The squirrel ran around from pillar to post. Moving really fast, making strange sound

Roaming round floor roaming all around in search for a snack all around the ground.

What did he want? Oh, look at him ! Climbing upon the rock sculpture.

DSC_9148He hopped from walls to branches to jump in a hole. A man admiring his marvelous skills, sat down to call him near.

 The gray soul kept on looking at him. Alert and cautious, flicked his tail, moved ahead.  

I was in awe to see the dialogue between them. Click, click, click was my reaction.DSC_9275

Squirrel moved close. Very close. I couldn’t believe that ! I

 A close up of a squirrel would have been perfect, I wished for a macro lens.

Anyway I was focused and decided not to move towards them to make the furry creature go away.

I was enjoying the wondrous site.DSC_9277

The squirrel was actually responding ! The man was patient. Perhaps the bushy chap was impressed with his persona.

Finally he reached where the man was sitting, gave him a high five and pushed off coolly. DSC_9278He crawled, spun circles showing his wild and free spirit. Tarun looked at me with a winning smile.

You guessed it right, the man with a hat was my dear husband.

Some say squirrels are rats with tail. I say they are happy, friendly souls. What say?

  1. I bet if rats had bush tails, everyone would love them, too. Congratulations to Tarun for his patience. The squirrels in many of our parks will take food from your fingers … they are used to people and getting fed all kinds of stuff. Many wild birds also are perfectly happy to let people feed them and in fact, if they get close enough, are quite demanding about it. They seem insulted if you don’t have anything to give them 🙂

    Thanks SO much for participating! You are indeed a ray of sunshine!!

    1. We have lot of squirrels in my garden and they all are so restless and always in hurry. This one was calm and friendly for a change. Thanks for the inspiring note. Keep inspiring.
