It's Coming

Fluttering flags fly
full force
in face of
wind's whipped warnings
- winter's coming

Birds scuttle and dart
foraging for fall's 
sumptuous seeds scattered
amongst the blown leaves

A brown bushy tail
flicks and twitches
amidst tree trunks
unearthing edible organics
worthy of winter ware

must keep the pace
creatures great and small race
lest flurried activity wane
in winter's arms

Frenzied tasks ebb
as wind slacks, slows
and the last leaf drops
on a soft blanket
turned from brown to white
