now that October has done
what it had promised 

trees stand

mostly bare

it is then that it 

can be seen

a mass of twig leaf and grass 


comfortably above in a fork

where prolonged drowsiness 

will reign 

there will come a time 

when my own covering will

fall away

and that thing I spent a lifetime 

building from the things I picked up

and cobbled together 

will emerge 

and within it

my essence will be resting 

until another spring 


somewhere else
