It’s a Monday afternoon
In the smoky cloudy shade of the day
I happen to glance out my window
Turkeys trek down the country road
A north country tradition
A flock of fowl peck and scratch
On an Autumn mission
In scattered droves.
They dig in the dried grass
looking for bugs
Cars pass by and slow engines to take a gander
One honks it’s horn
As a stray bird wanders in the road
Turkeys have taken over…
With crunchy leaves blowing off trees
and a chilly air signaling snow
I think there’s a panic in the air
A sudden scurry for food
To prepare for nature’s season change
Little do they know that November is here!
In a few weeks they may want to hide
For Thanksgiving will soon arrive.
All My Best,
Heart and Soul ❤️
