a new one...

hawks

at the end of a
long dirt road,
the small blue house
sits on a hill.

there is a creek nearby
and a sheer rock face
rising up from the other side.

a tree with silver bark
stands alone
down the hill
near the water,

near where she found the
hawk's feather.

over in the pasture,
crows are
massing

and signs of wildlife
appear
in the dense grass.

it is autumn. the leaves
are fire and wine.
the air is a razor, poised
and ready.

winter is coming.

but
it
is
not
here
yet.
