A Haiku - Snow Tracks

Updated on January 2, 2016

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.

      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.

      Love these haikus. I tried to do this kind of writing but was not very successful. You do very well. Blessings, Audrey

      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!
