Patience rewarded

My husband named him Rocky, 
The tailless raccoon with the wounded foot, 
And has started leaving peanuts for him 
Under our deck, where the deer can’t get them. 
The stellar’s jays quickly figured it out: 
They swoop down from their favorite pine, 
Flashing their iridescent wings, 
And wait in the Rhododendron by the deck 
For their chance to sneak in and grab a peanut. 
Who knew retirement could be so entertaining!
