boy with B-B gun
aiming at the moon
big game hunter

young child
playing checkers with grandpa
bifocals

in the boy’s hand
fascinating frog, nickel a peek
peewee Barnum

half the morning
coffee and crosswords

splashes of rain
on the autumn wind
sad story sniffles
faintly the moon
shows up before sundown
sibling rivalry
lost on country roads
new territory to explore
GPS complains
discarded antlers
one last hard knock
sheds the load*

*In these parts, discarded deer antlers are called sheds, and there are some people who go around gathering them for decorations or crafts. Gathering sheds you’re apt to get lost on country roads. 🙂
