    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.

    • Oh, man…poor kids! I can just visualize this scene and their disappointment. Poor parents who have to listen to them and encourage everyone’s patience! Thanks, Tim. ๐Ÿ™‚

        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.

    • 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.

    • 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—

  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. Bravo! This one is a cross between tricky and trippy, so ya really need to pivot yourself around the centre of the lines to make it come together. In other words, it’s clever, crafty and careful. Well done!

  5. 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.

    • 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!
