Rescued - Theresa Ann Moore

Clump of exploring brown fur
Exploring with a nervous grip
Hesitating… fearfully immobile
Unsure… beginning to slip

Mother has heard chattering whimpers
Her instincts guide caring eyes
Approaching with a heroic stride
Surveying cautiously… maternally wise

Nape grasping… young one hugging
Climbing upward to comfort nest
Releasing gently and reassuring
Freeing uncertainty… safe at rest
Theresa Ann Moore (born 1940) USA
