The woodland creatures gather,

a lakesiders migration,

the first killing frost sends them on. 


A nocturnal passage no more, 

the lakeshore is returned.

A thank you left,

a greeting to a changing season,

a Halloween treat  at their front door.


Happy Halloween

There is a moment,

all around me silent.

Sun, brilliant,


then hidden,

 breeze deadened to calm.

 First frost,

a silenced cacophony,

and I linger.


The moment held close,

a reminder,

why I walk the Northwood.
