Blackpearl Scared A Groundhog Off My Asian Pear Tree (Senryu) - Poem by NHIEN NGUYEN MD

My wife was happy
To see BlackPearl* chase ground hog
Off Asian pear tree.

As fast as lightning
BlackPearl rushed to my fruit tree
To scare off ground hog.

Ground hog was cornered
Quickly jumped down to escape
Ran into cornfield.

Tree was vandalized
Ground hog stole my fruits at night
And it's now confirmed.

I've seen pears on ground
Half fruits were eaten at night
Now, I know who climbed.


*BlackPearl is our yard roaming cat

    Would be a panther
    cat, that Black Pearl cat,
    to go for a hog.

    Is a ground hog just
    a little guinea pig sort of
    thing, Nhien Nguyen?
