Pat, Polona: excellent ideas...I hadn't thought of these possibilities. The great thing with haiku is the freedom the reader has in interpreting the words in those three short lines. My original concept was that the squirrel was upset that he had "lost" his dinner as he/she was watching it float away down the stream. :-)

Natalia, I am pleased you liked this one.
