    1. I didn't think of that! It probably did. I was on the porch when the mouse zoomed across the yard. We have lots more hawks here in town than when I lived in the country.

  3. the thing i love about haiku is how simply beautiful they are This certainly is. This is a skill or talent I just can't master. Would love to see yours or Magyar's or Jan's... haiku on a photo I posted at my nature blog. Love the photo too.

    1. You need to give it another try! It is easy to see that you observe nature. Just put down your thoughts. I start with what I want to say, then just keep paring it down to bare bones.

    1. I was more interested in the shadow than the tree. That is where I lost sight of the mouse. It never occurred to meth that the mouse could go up until Maygar mentioned it.

    1. My feelings exactly! Today is even brighter. I am glad to say we only got an inch of snow from nor'easter number 4.
