Walking through our unruly woods
the Rusty Pups and I found
a snow capped burl
Summery remnants swaying by the stream
We watched the stream still flowing beneath icy coverings
Rusty Pup, Shandy, discovered a new game...
drop a tennis ball in the stream...
then try and retrieve it without diving in and before it disappears beneath the ice.
Luckily she retrieved it each time.
If she hadn't
she would have looked at me with those big sad eyes
and expected me to do something about it!
Snow on ice on water...
from a very cold tangled woods!
