One October

One October
by CX Dillhunt

These trees on the edge
of this prairie afternoon
walking toward us

One October goose
squawking over your farmhouse
stretching neck and sky

Grey squirrel's tail glides
slides rides with red-tailed hawk
across neighbor's pond

Wild turkeys prancing
under those yellow maples
talking turkey talk

Whole October moon
hanging out in cold old oaks
next to stone silo

Empty fields speaking
of winter in our windy
haiku here dancing
