Footprints in the Snow

6:15 a.m.  I gaze outside to see footprints in the newly fallen snow.  The prints puzzle me – No, they are not the cat’s.  They look like…

My eyes move to the left and I notice a solemn rabbit nibbling on a bush buried in snow.  Nibble. Alert.  Nibble.  Alert.

Moments of silence pass as I enjoy the scene below.  I smile as my mind connects to a book, Footprints in the Snow.   Hello my unexpected acquaintance.

    I always feel worried for these little mammals in the winter. Then I remember they are far more able to handle the winter than I am. I enjoyed your peaceful moment.

    Love to discover footprints in the snow! Usually they are only bird tracks, although that may be a good thing. I’ll be checking around windows for tracks when the sun comes up.

    I loved the way you captured the bunny’s movement – what an unexpected way to begin a dreary day!

    A favorite of mine too, and your words are simple and clear, creating a sight and sound, and lack of sound image just like the book.

    Thank you for reminding me to take a closer look at the winter world around me. I am more inclined to have a keen eye in the warmer seasons.

    What a fun connection. I always love looking at foot prints in fresh snow, but even more, I love listening to it crunch under my feet with the sun making it sparkle.
