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

One thought on “gobbling leaves

  1. 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!
