double coat

topcoat, tawny bush,
thins to gray grass gaps beneath–
meadow’s vernal fur

I was driving through Logan canyon west of Bear Lake, Utah, in late April, when I spotted a clearing beside the river. The bushes and the grass beneath them both looked furry to me, and the contrast in size and texture reminded me of how some animals grow a double coat each winter, then shed it in the spring.
