along the frozen creeks bank, dormant pussy willows wait
along this rural road, a November mornings stillness
breaks with a bulldozers advance, for the new development
Author's Note: another Sijo.

Aptly worded reminder of man's and progress' continuing conflict with nature, with nature usually losing. What better symbols to express this than the bulldozer vs. pussy willow.

With dramatic effect you succinctly express the threat to rural serenity.
