Fields Going To Seed, Schooners Wrapped In Plastic

A day of sparrows
in fields going to seed
leaves red and falling

Fall leaves prayer flags.
On the front porch Buddha
contemplates a pumpkin.


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.
