prairie daze

claiming our daze and our days on the prairie

gobbling leaves

eliza and i and all our little friends
turned our autumn leaves
into thanksgiving turkeys

as they landed in the pile of “straw”

someone said
hey, really it’s a gobbling leaf!

turkeys or gobbling leaves,
seeing over 30 of these in the room and
hearing kids hum “turkey in the straw”
has made my thanksgiving whole

    I hope you have a very happy Thanksgiving. I love visiting your blog, there always seems to be a new post and it’s always something that brings a smile. I think I could learn a lot about the beauty of brevity here–as I’m one who tends to ramble on and on and on!
