Nearly December

A tumble of starlings above gathers

and wheels in synchrony as if

each turn has been rehearsed.

A splash of yellow ginkgo leaves

brightens the lawn as bare trees

stand black against the dawn.

Snow geese long since passed through

juncos returned and the many small

birds now much easier to spot.

It is nearly December.
