A Bowhunter In God's Cathedral
That time of day in late September,
before the North Wind rattles the bones,
when the ginger sun has finally slipped from sight

they awaken for their fifteen minutes of daily fame.
Insects emerge, anxious for the darkness of night,
Chickadees flit to gather the feast...
