Autumn Walk

I stroll along dogs running ahead then waiting for me as I peer at
the marvels nature spreads before me. A hollow in a trunk is home
to a squirrel who chatters angrily at me for intruding.


Lush yellow wheat fields
ears waving golden and plump
in blazing sunlight


The crops are ready for harvesting full and plump
maize for animal feed, corn for our bread and barley
to make beer. There will be a merry celebration when 
harvest is finally in 


Flush of sunflowers
standing so stately and tall
birds feeding on seeds


All these seeds and berries now ripened
and being feasted on by birds and rodents stocking
up on winter fat to see them through to spring . Now it
is time to hibernate the long cold days of Winter away 
until once again Winter relents turning into Spring
