thistles
and lambs ear
still trying to make it

first to come
last to go

pin prick stars map out
a crisp cloudless night
Orion stands on the Southwest horizon
below freezing now
until dawn

soon there will be nothing
on the wind to smell
for miles
and the woods
will go quiet

the season intent
on cleansing
has begun
