Ground Hog’s Day

Ground hog gorging
allows for winter's sleep

stirred by it's body clock
gets up to check

if spring is on it’s way.
A shadow sends it down

for six more weeks
of winter cold:

snow falling,
ice and sleet,

cocoa by the fireplace,
warm blankets,

and fluffy slippers
for your feet.
