One Day in September (prose poem)
Leaves hopscotch before a parade of Autumn moments, hooves sheep-shuffled, baaing for grain trees dressed in poplar, fir---magpies feathering from branch to branch. Amid scattered heaps of winter hardwood cache, dogs slumber. We marvel as llamas trot to a fresh patch of grass, Dexter cattle mooing happily as they bend and chew, and donkey’s harsh calling---my lady and I captured by an afternoon of sunny Alberta day.
