January Haiku

 for https://mindlovemiserysmenagerie.wordpress.com/

Crunching underfoot,
hard frost adds sparkle today
to my winter walk.

Mole leaves his traces,
betrays presence below ground
of juicy worms.

Misty blue background
simplifies the nearer view –
winter field at dusk.


All three suggested by the view from my armchair across the peaceful Normandy countryside.

    That first verse describes my dog walking this morning. It’s great coming back in to a nice fire though isn’t it?
