Morning Musings

It snowed again, overnight

Eager eyes basked in the sight

Of frosted branches and ground

Squirrels scurrying around

Hunting food with all their might

Autumn Hours

The shorter the days

The sweeter the gaze

Upon nature’s wonders in the light

Ever we prize

What we can take in with our eyes

For too soon comes the night

Haiku 11/29/21

Pine cones on the ground

Squirrels stuff their nests with nuts

Birds fill their bellies

Hi Ho Silver

No one with which to play

So, on such a cold day

She bundled up to go outside

And made a snow pony to ride

And together they rode away

It took all day to make

Only minutes to eat

Topped with desserts so sweet

Wobbling now
