Late Autumn in the Hills
By Laura Sherry
From “Ridge People”

A FLOCK of birds
Spurts down the trail of autumn.
Bare hills
Wrap fog-blankets about them,
And nod….        5
A whirl of wind
Scatters wild rice over the lake.
There is a shake of snow in the air.
My boat moors in the sedges.
My hand        10
Droops over the side of the boat.
My fingers
Touch a lotus pod.
The seeds rattle in the husk.
Autumn is anchored.        15
