Animal Wednesday - OSI - Comb

Animal Wednesday and OSI's prompt 'comb' collided in my mind this week. I was watching the Canada Geese fly by on their way out into the fields to forage and loaf around. Then my eye was caught by the Juncos 'combing' the ground for fallen seed from the feeders. This haiku and sketch with pencil emerged.
I hope you have a great Animal Wednesday and if you are in the mood for some more haiku pop over to One Single Impression for more haiku and poetry.

Jingle Bell, Jingle bell...

When I noticed a painting for sale by another artist and my muse sparked for a moment I decided to try to copy it. I thought this was so much fun. I wish I could think of the artist's name. Anyway I thank him for awakening my recalcitrant muse. Jingle bell rock is one of my favorite Christmas songs.

At this time of year
it's difficult not to be still
snowfall muffles noise

Activity halts
nerves are soothed by
natures cool blanket

The fireplace draws us
to its side like Mother's arms
welcoming and warm

A cup of hot tea
can have the same affect
enjoyed with memories
