Ready for Winter

Robins pipe a shrill warning whenever I enter the yard, freezing rabbits and squirrels and warblers mid-meal.

Rabbit Nov 27

Their tense silence intensifies the pear tree’s rattle, the dry wind-notes that flash red and gold in chilly sunshine.

Leaves Nov 30

Perhaps an early snow will muffle it all, an icy blanket for the long dark hours ahead…
