Framing October in My Bedroom Window | Jenny Wong

the geese take to sky,

redraw themselves

into dots and dashings –

pencil marks


a bare canvas of cloud.


the rabbits

dub over the summer

held in their earthy-colored coats,

become whispers of white

to match the impending

sound of snow.


I think of the things

                                       that will eventually leave me


while the trees undo

their ragged crowns,

and show the leanness

of long winter bones.
