Tracks

 

Last night’s snow tells tales

of guests come calling while I slept

late and early, footprints –   

(both familiar and un-)

crossing paths, skirting others,

some lead directly to my door

 

Sorry I am

to have missed them

(slumbering through their sojourn)

still I smile in the knowing,

trails revealed, every snowing

  2. The heavy snowfall on Sunday night has been washed away, here, in southern Ontario.
    Your photos make a delightful collage!
