The Tracks of my Toes

Here I go

in winter’s snow

dancing to and fro

telling my prints where to go

I dig a hole

to what’s below

beyond the snow

it excites me so

But then I go

because here it’s cold

outside the window

I’m not that bold

The tracks of my toes

will forever show

I played with gusto

then quit the show

in winter’s snow

      I suppose little Copper enjoys frolicking in the snow…or does he do what’s necessary and that’s it?

      The year is starting well and I plan to make it stay that way. Happy Monday, Shelley!

      • Copper has an outside gauge built in that prohibits him from wandering too long and too deep into snow, especially when it is below 32 degrees. But the wild animals, like rabbits and deer and fox wander all over the place.
        I’m glad to hear your year is starting out well. Happy January to you!!

    That’s a fun poem. Are those Gibbs’ toes? Bold but not crazy.

    Maddie has covered the back yard with paw prints, mostly following the bunny’s prints. Just enough snow to leave tracks.

      Yes, they are Gibbs’ paws in the snow. Not sure what the digging was about other than him acting more like a dog than his crazy cat self. Maddie would have fun with him if they were both willing participants.

      Have a great Monday and week, Dan!

    Love the poem and the photo! I kind of miss the little paw prints that would adorn my car after a snow (back when I lived in an apartment without a garage)…

    Lovely poem told through the cat’s voice. Your interpretation of his/ her thoughts based on the prints is great and I really like how the cat seems to reflect on the marks left behind and what they tell. A lot packed into a few words.
