November

November pulls the daylight shorter

crisp long shadows

a cool moon

hallways of justice ├ęcho

will there be unfaithful electors

in this month of political aspiration

migrating birds begin their journey

when there is snow on the ground

they will come to the feeder

Today the hawk came

perched on the fence

I do not want to witness

hawk swooping

to squirrel or bird

or my small dog

the hawk

ready

with talons

and hunger

___________

dVerse prompt on November combined with prompt on witnessing

November
