Woodland White?  Of what can I write?

The bird’s underwing as it takes flight?

The perky tip of a white-tailed deer?

Glistening sun in water so clear?

Beautiful masses of skeleton flowers?

Or water-smoothed stones stacked in towers?

Fluffy clouds and snow-covered peaks?

Squirrel’s chests and chipmunk’s cheeks?

The snowy owl perched on a limb?

Or the frosty leaves surrounding him?

The mushroom with an umbrella top?

A cotton-tail rabbit doing a bunny hop?

Holly berries with white butterflies?

A white mountain wolf with keen, alert eyes?

A family of skunks at home in the bowers?

I must decide, this could take hours!

It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...
