A Different View

Today we took Philo and Mama for
a walk on the frozen pond.  The weather
is supposed to turn warmer later in the week
and while there is probably a foot of ice

all winter, rustling loudly
announcing it’s presence
speaking it’s wishes
on the wind.

down to the neighbors drive through
the woods. Some wood for next

Patterns on the drive.

Patterns on the mouse
chewed cardboard where
I keep my straw.


And more nests.


And the ducks on view.

Stories still to be told.
