Raccoons' Night Life

[looks like I got a morning/month theme going]

March started
with a cold and wet morning

On a pre-dawn walk
I discovered the night activities
of a pack of raccoons
revealed in a fast-melting trace of snow

Up and down sidewalks
through gardens and alleys
around and on-top of trash bins
the critters had been busy

Long before the sun came up
they scurried off
to their cozy hiding place

I wondered if they had room
for one more.
