Two haikus for the end of November

fall day on Shattuck
ginkgo leaves fill the sidewalk
forming a carpet

I kneel to inspect
one: orange papery and thin
fits in my pocket









mom passes along
news from aunt and uncle
it’s about the geese

they’ve arrived today
from Canada—swarming bodies
on the frozen lake

ice fisherman’s land
gone as quickly as they came
searching winter’s home
