chirping: “Get ready; be prepared”,
hoarding their finds with relish
treetop leaping with added zest.

The geese are gathering too –
like all good Canadians –
making plans for the winter

and the influx of autumn weather –
and I ponder what I should be gathering,
energy fading with summer’s farewell.

(Gathering is the focus of my weekly challenge.  Would love it if you joined in.)
