First snowflakes
Softly fallen from the sky
Look for happy feet

This put a smile on my face tonight! And that squirrel looks as if he owns his surroundings!

They were all over my back porch a week or so ago. Tons of happy feet.

I am smiling at your snappy repartee! So positive you have made this. I love the squirrel. I have a yard full of them because of my walnut trees. They always delight me and now I will have your words to add in that delight when I see them in the snow.

Dear Kathe W.: I had to laugh at the little cold-footed squirrel after I read your joyful poem! Fresh!

kkrige said...

Oh does it ever need happy feet! Wow, what beautiful pristine snow cover! We only have enough to cover the grass. I would be out with the girls attempting snow men, women and kids, plus all the snow angels we could muster. Delightful haiku.
