The snow started spitting as we ventured
from our warm, cozy car in
Point Pleasant Park yesterday.
I hit the jackpot this day
checking out new friends
as you'll see,
from this Newfoundland mix ~
to this scamp
(the puppy that is, winks )
who did a speedy 360 sniff around me
then took off
like a comet ~
to this Portuguese Waterdog
who spun around me so fast
that I almost lost my balance
Fast ~ is an understatement ~ my friends.
This feller was smaller than me
so 180 degree turns are super easy
without any consequences
like slipping or falling down ~
however the best part was discovering the park pond
covered in a sheet of ice
with skiffs of snowflakes
flying across the smooth surface ~~
but the coolest part was finding these words
floating under the ice near the waters edge!
Did I surprise you?
HAPPY NEW YEAR
