The trees see everything

observing the hunter

and the prey


the fox pauses,

his nose sensing the air

then presses on

as a rabbit holds court

in silence


the ground is moist,

below the surface

winter retains its hold


twigs lay scattered

from icy winds

and leaves carpet the moss

providing protection

for mice


spring is one day closer.
