Saved by Dry Pond Ice by D.C. Buschmann


I press my nose
to the windowpane
& view frozen terrain.

Squirrels play outside,
slide across the pond
like it’s a baseball diamond.

Deep freeze is her foe
as the schnauzer sniffs,
nosing for lone whiffs

to guide her. The trail
vanishes from sight
& scent on dry pond ice.
