The Acorn’s Wish

by Frank Hubeny

The acorn doesn’t worry much.
It wants to be a tree.
But if it feels a squirrel’s touch,

Then lucky squirrel. Its wish comes true
To run the way that squirrels do,
But on some other tree.

  1. This was so simple and yet so profound and philosophical! I loved the yearning of the acorn to be a tree and then how the circle of Life ended things in a different, but better way for the squirrel! Very insightful of the details of a small aspect of life and reality!
