HoH Prompt / Saved
A Soul Wrapped in Fur
Each life in nature,
a gift deserving respect.
A soul wrapped in fur
needing help, what could I do?
Sometimes we save each other.

I rescued an injured wild mouse almost three weeks ago. She’s permanently disabled and will live the rest of her life as my pet.
The day before I found Javi the Mouse, my third grandchild was born more than a thousand miles away. Although I was happy that mother and baby are healthy and well, I was sad that I can’t be with my daughter and granddaughter. This little mouse came into my life at the moment I needed a distraction. I rescued her but she also saved me from depression.
What does saved mean to you? Have you been rescued? Have you rescued someone else? Please, tell us in haiku/tanka/monoku form.
Tracy Aston and I look forward to reading your responses.
