October 24: Crows at dusk

Dusk comes so soon now.
Perched on a bare, wet branch,
how big the crow looks.

October 23: Reflex

Dark and stormy night--
I keep swerving
to avoid skittering leaves.

October 21: Rain ahead

As predicted, it rains--
jays mob the feeders,
river sighs, opens wide.

October 20: Bare branches, bare arms in the cold

Trees shivering, leaves lost,
colors fading underfoot--
I'm not ready.

October 19: Winter is coming

Walking through Camden's Harbor Park and Amphitheatre this afternoon, the signs of coming cold were gathering with the fallen leaves.
Frost warning--
schooners wrapped in plastic,
flocks of south-bound sparrows.

October 18: Schoodic Head Trail

Raven alerts the woods--
our clumsy passage through
misty spruces and moss

October 17: Schoodic

Arrived in the dark
we hear the sea's dark pulse
glory in all the stars
