late november

November 27, 2011- Small Stones
late November  by  Teri H Hoover

As we walk the Huckleberry Trail at dusk 
a surprising number of crickets
keep Pepper and I company.
December will be here in three days.

...and then as I finish sending my stone
I look up to see a skunk 10 feet ahead.
Back peddling onto the bridge.
Stamping my feet and scaring my dog,
the skunk wanders off the path.
We continue only after another person passes first.
