What goes on in the forest once the sun goes down? Little campfires are lit, and thimbles full of Earl Grey are quietly enjoyed.

"What soft, sweet warm that comforts through the dappled scarlet cape that hugs the trees...
that tantalizes squirrels hastening burials upon their knees
embracing gold with only green's memories
that fail to cling.
They try to hide the cold, dark truth of winter's
cruel and frosty sting...
patiently awaiting the autumn's first freeze." ~Cynthia Stamps

A delicious piece!

I had a dream about your foxfires sweet squirrels last night and I had to visit again for the ninth time.
"What goes on in the forest once the sun goes down? Little furry squirrel adventerers gather round. They sit around while campfires are lit, and drink thimbles full of Earl Grey and conncoctions of things that might make them sing a bit. Squirrels are adventering folk some scouts on trees, some admirals on boats. ~Dawna

:wow: Wow! Great imagination. Sometimes it seems like there are no new ideas out there. Then I see this. Is this part of a larger story? I hope so. Seems like it would have a lot of possibilities.

:iconflowerdanceplz: Thank you so much!! What an awesome compliment!

This is definitely part of a larger story. :nod: Someday, my big dream is to write my own children's story with this character, and illustrate it all myself. :D You can find more of my squirrels (and other storybook type stuff) here: [link]

The one that pertains to this particular squirrel is "Columbus". :D

Thanks so much for looking! :hug:
