As we walked through the woods to our favourite watering hole
red squirrels chattered and screeched warnings that
rusty pups were about.
We were interrupting their busy winter preparations.
The pups and I took a path less travelled.
They swam in the lake
rolled in the sand
and played tag through the trees.
I spied subtle signs of seasonal changes.
Do you remember having to explore all the types of line you could make in art class?
Where water and land meet
So many types of edges or lines.
Smooth firm line of rock against water
Gently rippled lines of waves
A scratchy line of washed up pine needles
Spikey gatherings of shoreline grasses.
Have a nice day
and go and see what Kaite's creative Mum can do with kelp
down there in Australia!
