  1. Wonderful Haikus Young Naturalist C!! Everyone loved what you did yesterday, I just had to post another one tonight (because we are getting numerous snowflakes)!

  2. Very beautiful Haikus Young Naturalist C! And what a perfect time for this one. It snowed all day today here!

  3. It is snowing here too and I just came in from raking frozen, icy leaves! Maybe I could Haiku that experience! But Young Naturalist C’s poetry would be hard to beat! Good work.

  4. I love haiku. As a writer, it is a form I can tackle with my limited time. As a teacher, it is something I can teach my students and have them excel at while still knowing that they have amazing room for growth.

    Yay for you for supporting your Young Naturalists in this way. You rock, Mon@rch!

    Great photo – but “NO” to snow! Too early!

  6. wow, great shot… we usually don’t see any snow down this far south but it always makes for some dramatic shots.

    I love it when you can see more than the actual image in the shot… it could be a meteor shower as well 🙂

  7. Very nice. I remember driving through falling snow at night–when I was younger I’d imagine I was flying through outer space. 🙂

  8. @ Young Naturalist J – it has snowed here also all day! But it is melting quickly!
    @ Ruth – that doesn’t sound fun! I would love to hear your haiku that you do!
    @ Liz – she did great and I think these might be some of her school homework that I am posting! And, they make brain think easier since my last three post have been done by all by the kids!
    @ Moe – sometimes we can’t help the snow!
    @ Chip – Snow is common in this area! Wish we didn’t have to worry about snow!
    @ Lana – I can remember days driving and thinking that!

    Wow, beautiful…and I usually don’t say that about the snow.

    I think I’ll start signing my posts “Old Naturalist P”

  10. Great haiku C! Wow, you were getting some serious snow there!

  11. Dear Monarch,
    Snow, haiku, owls, and young naturalist!
    These are are few of my favorite posts!
    I am writing a list of the best of the best, you are one of the best! Encouraging young folk to love nature in all of her grand forms and to write poetry is the mark of a kindred spirit.

  12. Very nice poem, C. I saw a similar scene out our window last week. We got spared pretty much yesterday even though they predicted 5 inches. I don’t like the cold but I still like being inside and warm watching the snow sipping on coffee.

  13. @ NaturesPalette – I sometimes have the same feeling about snow! Regarding the name, please feel free to call yourself that but since these are not my kids, I try to disclose any personal info about them due to bad people!
    @ Pam – that picture was from last year but we have been getting some snow! Thanks
    @ Sherry – such a wonderful complement and I really appreciate your kind words! If a blog has a mission, I guess involving nature with kids would be one of them! Thanks again! 🙂
    @ Erie – didn’t she do good? I am or can be a snow person but enjoy the spring season best!

  14. I can’t believe you are getting snow! It’s always so beautiful, isn’t it.

    I love how young people find their poetry in themselves, pick up a pen and write. Inspiration is a wonderful thing. To find it in nature means there is a hidden poem everywhere you look.

    I thought of you yesterday when a stunning Townsend’s Warbler showed up at the neighbors birdbath. I got some good shots of it too!

    I don’t like winter driving, but I love snow for the photo opportunities. Nature in winter is interesting. Tiny animals and birds leave tracks in the snow to study, and photograph. There are an amazing number of adaptations for living in the cold.

  16. Great shot. I thought it was meteors at first. We got about 11″ of snow over the past two days. I think it will melt this week as the ground isn’t really cooled down yet.

  17. Beautiful poem. I think young naturalist c is quite the burgeoning artist! Snow? For us it will be any day now… the skies are being selfish but eventually will let go! (I cannot wait personally)

  18. Young Naturalist C: great poem, keep up the good work and could you send some snow my way, please!

    17 November 2007 at 6:41 pm

  19. @ Robin – snow is happening! But melting quickly due to the warmer ground! I could never write anything like this and true talent! I will have to get over your site and look for the photo!
    @ Grace – Snow can be hard to photograph sometimes also! But it is fun for sure with the little critter prints like you mentioned! Thanks
    @ Walters – thanks and its me going in warp speed! LOL! Our snow is melting fast also!
    @ aullori – She is excellent with her words for sure! I can’t wait to post some of the other ones she did! Would you like all our lake effect? I would be happy to give it all away!
    @ Chicago – she did do wonderful and consider the lake effect going your direction!

    What a lovely Haiku! C is a gem

    I still haven’t seen snow-and it better stop there

    17 November 2007 at 8:12 pm

  21. Man, you gotta clean your sensor – there’s dust all over it! 😉

    19 November 2007 at 7:10 pm

  22. @ Marg – got flakes today! Ugg, I hear you!
    @ Adam – LOL, some dustbunnies! LOL
