Zig Zagging

Winter sun slants low, cold,
white gold,

casting faint shadows across
the frosty fields,

prettifying furrows and hedges
and rusted plants around the edges.

Is it possible to backlight a hare’s ears,
making them glow pink

as it zig-zags its way home this morning?

My response to dVerse Poets Pub Quadrille: Poem Those Possibles

De is here again to host Quadrille Monday, when we write poems of exactly 44 words, including a specific word. Today it’s ‘possibilities’ in any of its many forms.

  1. What an uplifting image – the hair’s pink ears. I love cold and frosty mornings, and that hare made me think of the story ‘Guess how much I love you?’ I feel all warm inside now 😊

  3. Wow–another winner out here on the trail. Everyone is shining, more than ready for the quadrille, never restricted, whole worlds encapsulated in 44 words. This was a chilly and invigorating poetic ride.
