The Bunny Bath

On the right a pot of geraniums and hibiscus;
just dirt in the area of this garden
it is July 21st, 8 pm, 76 degrees and less humid
in the enclosure is much grass
grass with abundant clover.
Every day two baby bunnies come to this enclosure and eat vegetation
and take a bath – one at time.
A bunny scampers in the dirt
then sits and scratches his ear with a paw, and around his face
and then rolls in the dirt, squirming and stretching.
Suddenly he is still, laying on his back as if in a sauna.
When revived, he eats clover and scampers under the picket fence to his burrow.
Now it is the second bunny’s turn…
