Lost in the woods...

One moment you know where you are.
The next, it all starts to look the same.
Even our footprints seem to be everywhere.
The path is gone. The light's getting dim.
Follow the frozen stream down, but that too
just zig-zags, from tree to tree, going more sideways.
Lost? Of course not...we are in the woods.

snow fall

The sounds of snow falling.
Needs a little precipitation concentration.
A steady dropping onto the tree branches,
and the ground sound. Almost a hum.
The dry beech leaves still on their branches
add the hiss. That other sound...well, she
was there too.

Just one more surprise for 2008.
A large bobcat in a snow covered lawn chair.
Sort of a stare-down was taking place.
We were not winning.
And we couldn't afford to lose.
When she took off, in was in the opposite
direction, thankfully.
Only then did we notice the other two.
Outnumbered, we retreated to the truck.

More 'running' winter

The toboggan project returns.
Not exactly hillside snow traffic,
but moving quickly can be important.
Having trouble with the turns
and the uphills but doing better
on the fast dash down.
If only we could stop without crashing.....

COLD Turkey

Snow covered woods
Cooled breezes.
Almost ice cold turkeys
All late for dinner.
No time for chatter.
Make for the deeper snow
