squirrels are so active in winter...they interest me....In our epic Ramayana, the story is that the three line mark on squirrels are the finger marks of Rama...a mark of affection for helping him build the setu -- the bridge -- to cross the seas to Sita in Ravana's premises --

nice haiku, Carlos :)

Buenos días Carlos.
Te dejo un haiku.

Sigue nevando
diviso blanco el campo
y sigo andando

Besos, amigo

We have squirrels all over our town. This is so real to me.

Hi Devika--I pressed the "Publish" button by mistake; wasn't ready to put that post out yet.

Devika said...

Okay, Carlos...but the last was too good :)

Devika, thanks for that piece on the squirrel in Ramayana. I think I must have read the Ramayana or about the Ramayana in Literature class back in school... but that was a a long time ago.

Regards.

Thanks, Duna. Isn't fresh snow such a wonder? Also, it could be so deceiving--you don't know what it's covering up.

Abrazos.

Shannon, I don't see a lot of fresh tracks these days. The 2 feet of snow on the ground must be intimidating--or the squirrels have just decided to create tunnels underneath the snow.

Keep warm.
