Talisman

This one is inspired by a WordPress Daily Prompt, today’s prompt in fact. Why walnuts? Beats me.

Talisman

A walnut
pinched between
a squirrel’s teeth,
round and green
like a bud about to bloom,
to be hidden
in the dark
of a tree’s hollow
where, when the cold snarls,
life retreats to warm,
to eat.
