First rooster crowing—
a snowy mountain meadow
remains unperturbed.

  1. Sad but at least they have each other.

  2. How nice that the rooster did not disturb this pristine snow. 😉

  3. I like the image of a snowy meadow unperturbed.. Looks like the area around Strawberry—?

  4. Unperturbed certainly hots the spot here – depth truly achieved with such economy – Great! With Best Wishes Scott http://www.scotthastie.com

  8. Smiles. Why should such marvels humor the bird?!

  9. The most beautiful sight is that snowy meadow unperturbed.

  10. I’m sure the rooster thinks he’s make a big impression though : )

  11. Just like the new year hasn’t changed much. Well done!

  18. What a charming couple. They look like they are talking of all the changes they have witnessed on their beautiful meadow.

  19. I can almost hear them saying to each other, “Well, what now?”

  20. The melody keeps others undisturbed. Too mesmerizing obviously. Nice write MMT!


  21. Meadows can be tricky buggers…let’s start us a rooster collective..

  22. An undisturbed meadow is a rare sight. Great haiku.
