Coyote - en.wikipedia.org
The sunny blue sky
and the forest trails beckon
there are creatures in the bush.
Raven's on the wing
and Coyote softly sings
what message do they bring?
and there's frost on the mead-
there are footprints in the snow.
We pause to listen well,
ancient voices cast their spell
to hear the Old Ones whisper low.
Driving through brilliant sunlight yesterday, these lines came to me, as Raven and Pheasant in turn crossed my windshield, Small Squirrel skittered away, and thick frost glittered in the meadow. A light dusting of snow has made Mount Arrowsmith beautiful. Everyone in town was full of smiles, in the most welcome sunshine.
