Early Morning, 9/19/2026
The morning moon shone like Halloween over our yard, floating in indigo, framed by dark trees, cobwebbed with clouds
The old woman tossed up in the basket will be along shortly to sweep them away
Crickets are chirping like stars twinkle
Their noise is bright and refreshing
At first I thought no birds were singing but then I really listen and their morning songs ring out all over
They are making plans, striking deals, keeping appointments
I passed a house that Mole and Rat might live in and I wished I was a mouse out caroling to offer them a song
The scurry of squirrels that lives in this big walnut tree are manufacturing their winter stash
Follow the procedure: procure a a sealed bivalve, dash up tree to high branch, drop shell to crack it open, scramble back down to collect loot, secret the bounty for when the world is frozen over
These critters will be just fine
