One thought on “Wildlife Wednesday 11/19/2014

  1. A marmot comes out
    To drink from
    Rivulets of a melted
    But the marmot neither knows,
    Or cares, as he drinks, drenched
    In a dazzling light, Reflected
    Off virgin snow.

    I saw him as he stood
    On a rock, surveying the
    Humans nearby,
    Striding upwards.

    He turned his head
    And met my eyes.
    Just another human.
    He turned away and left.

    I stripped off my boots and dipped my feet
    In the chilly stream,
    Breathed in the startlingly clear air
    And waited for him to reappear.

    By Sitting On A Rock
