Finding a new use for an old item or idea is what the Deer Mouse does:
She thatches leaves into a roof for an old bird’s nest,
filling it with nuts, seeds, dried beetles, feathers & thistle down,
This first snow insulates her winter getaway.
I watch her scurry 50’ up the tree trunk,
pause to survey w/ her large ears twitching, then slip inside.
I’m awed & reminded to search out new purposes,
to be a finder.
