Melting into Spring

snow blown night, scarf tight
high snow dune drifts swirled
in front of my door

perched on fence post
the meadowlark announces
"SPRING!" in april snow

tall snow drifts melt
to unveil green grass
fast eaten by horses

mud on cowboy boots
mud on fast running dog paws
mud on kitchen floor

blind white furballs purr
cuddled up with mom in barn
horse trough a warm home


  1. I like the horse haiku a lot.

    Best wishes

  2. Thinking of mud:

    wild turkeys
    strut across this muddy path
    the owners
