A Haiku - Snow Tracks

Source

Hoof Prints

Trespassing allowed

the unheard hoof prints in snow

for fallen apples

Fallen Fall Apples

Seeking sustenance

silent and alert they came

for frozen dinners.

  • A Haiku: It's November
    4

    November: the month when "The war to end all wars" ended; yet wars go on. November: the month when America's elections end, and governments go on.

  • A Haiku - Leadership
    20

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.

  • Biographical:  Once Upon A Throne - Part II

    This is the continuation of Part I of this story of a Laotian girl becoming a young woman raised in the royal palace of her grandfather and in a time of wars and change.

Dear WhoYou (couldn't resist) - I guess this means we are both sticking around for whatever we give and get from HP. Three cheers for us who knew who we are.

Nell Rose - Oh, indeed the apples disappear overnight. It is a wonderful new year. The same to you and yours.

Dear Audrey, Blessings to you and yours, and your comment is greatly appreciated. I have cousins in Oklahoma City, David and Joyce Craigie as well as an LDS missionary friend serving there, Sister Hermana Chloe Taylor of the Oklahoma City Mission of the church. If you see a cute, blonde sister missionary walking along with a sister companion, surprise her and say "Hi, Chloe!" David is a retired, comparatively young, Oklahoma City fire fighter who loves to sail, and Joyce is a cancer survivor.

aviannovice -Now you know from the last comment (above) that I am sure to get to Stillwater, OK one of these days soon.

You probably saw my mention of the 42 quail that stopped by just the other day to feed on some of our distributed bird seeds. A few of them were the inspiration for my story of Quentin Quail. It will be fun to see how many of the 42 decide to nest around the edges of my garden lot next spring.

That's a good thought. I'll take you around my lake!

aviannovice - Then I know I will have to do it while I'm still young. or at least youthful! Should I bring my camera, too? What's the best season? I bet there is some month we can skate around the lake!
