all scratched up
my hands

a grouse flushes
and flies down the creekbed
autumn woods -
on the footbridge I pause
as a silent owl follows ...

dried brown grass
chevron flight of geese
calling out ...

after waiting . . .
the surprise of seeing
a deer

deer stand
deep in the swamp -
a cat meows

blowing a goose call
in a duck blind

the cold
in my fingers -
deer stand

Thanksgiving rain
the duck blind roof
keeps us dry

unaware of the gun
in the autumn rain...

in the swamp
covered in leaves
a lawn chair
darkening afternoon
sitting watching for deer

in falling snow
a fawn browses alone -
autumn dusk

cold Christmas morning
the dog's bell falls

a tender young duck
on the grill
