Night allows me to wander,




Snow changes everything.

tracks 1

My path discovered.

tracks 2

Still, I explore.


Steps visible,


But not decipherable.

Exploring, in the night.

  1. This post combines 2 of my favorite things that you do on your blog, Elsie — phoetry and writing from unusual points of view! Thank you for this peek into an animal’s life! Delightful combination of pictures and words, as always! 🙂

    Footprints in the snow! Mystery continues…..maybe another chapter next week? Thanks for sharing the beauty around you with the rest of us!

  3. I love the pictures that go with your writing. I laughed thinking of how disruptive the snow was for you. I’m so sorry. That has to be frustrating, but it looks so beautiful and it inspired some nice writing :).

    Beautiful! I know people are tired of the snow…but I still love it…and seeing tracks after a fresh snow always brings a smile to my face….just like your pictures did.

  5. Oooh – I love the way you led us through this mysterious visitor’s journey. I love waking up to these tracks, too – in the still of the night, there is so much activity!

  6. I smiled when I saw the tracks in the snow. This morning as we were getting into the car, my oldest was excited to see deer tracks in the yard. Both of my older girls love to look at tracks in the snow and talk about who they probably belong to.

    I had never heard about phoetry. What a fun concept. I loved the blend as a reader. Enjoy your walks in the snow. I love the crunching sound it makes.

    Lovely, but I’m curious…who was exploring? Surely there’s someone who can decipher those prints. We had a lovely snow on Sat., all remnants erased by rain on Monday.

Thanks for taking time to comment.
