Muffled Silence 

Muffled silence of the wilderness
What little sound there is
Echoes off the snow covered rocks
Deep paw prints leaving a trail
Through the white canyon
Follow the tracks, where will they lead?
What will be seen around the corner?
A deep throated growl in the distance
Sending shivers down your spine
Looking around for some cover
Finding nothing but snow clad land
Standing still, ears pricked for sound
Muffled silence of the wilderness
Is all that can be heard now....
I saw a wonderful photo of an aerial view of some animals
trekking through a rocky pass in the deep snow,
it made me think, how would I cope if it was me..?
