    1. This photo practically does all the work for a reader’s imagination, but we can still wonder about the trespassers. Owner of the fields? Children? Large animals? After admiring virgin snow, it was always fun to make the first footprints. Thanks, Dave.

      1. Yes, there is some (welcome) mystery in the photo and poem, Mary Jo. And I agree that it’s a pleasure and a privilege to make the first footprints in pristine snow. Plus maybe a bit of regret. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Excellent. Beautiful photo. It snowed for a while at our house yesterday. Laurie said she walked out to the river, and soon the neighbor kids, who moved in about 6 months ago, walked up to the levee in full snow gear pulling a sled. The dusting of snow had already melted off the banks of the levee they were going to sled down. She said the kids stood on the levee looking perplexed about what to do with a sled and no snow.

      1. We rarely get enough snow to sled, and snow never lasts long in the valley. I felt sorry for the kids when Laurie said they had a sled. I don’t know that many people would have sleds in Corrales.

    1. This was one of those rare instances when a nearly completed poem was finished through the assistance of a photo. Thank you for stopping by! I greatly enjoyed your interview on Rebeccaโ€™s blog as well as visiting your own website.

  2. The image of a drowsy sun brought back so many memories of living in Northern Manitoba, Mary Jo. I recall walking to school in the dark and coming home in the dark. Sunrise in January would come at around 9:30 and sunset would happen at around 4:00. It seemed that the sun was drowsy indeed. The sun seemed to like to sleep in and could hardly wait to go to bed at night. But we didnโ€™t mind because we all knew that while the sun was up, he did a great job of trying to warm our winter temperatures.

    1. Oh wow, thatโ€™s truly drowsy…and dark! I know you miss snow often but probably not all that darkness. Iโ€™m so happy my little winter haiku are evoking so many Manitoba memories for you, Rebecca.๐Ÿค—โ„๏ธ๐Ÿ›ทโ˜ƒ๏ธโ›ธ๐Ÿค—

      1. I miss the North – even the darkness which was lit by northern lights. Sometimes the whole sky was filled!!! Did you know that northern lights make noise – crackles and muffled bangs? I understand that scientists still donโ€™t know exactly how these noises are made.. The summer months made up for the winter months. I remember visiting people at 11pm and the sun was still shining in the sky.

  3. A wonderful photo and poem, with engaging discussion that followed! In our neck of the woods, deer tend to be the intruders leaving the tracks–and they come with attitude aplenty, as befitting their flaunting of their tracks.

  4. The perfect picture of nature’s beauty. A scene I could stand and look at for a very long time. Snow does make the world such a bright and lovely place. As your words state – that is a drowsy sun.

    1. Yes, it really is a beautiful photo. I haven’t been able to find the photographer, although similar ones were seen on a couple British news sites, so I figure it’s a British landscape. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!
