November oak

November oak

standing, a stalwart of
his tribe
gatekeeper to the field
of bowed grasses and headless
flowers, and I
shuffling through his shed
raiments on my way
along a too familiar footpath
so perfectly reflected
his silhouette
as I reached out and spread
my fingers
to feel Winters
first chill
