As Summer passed into fall the sky filled with birds.
The eternal honking of the Canada Goose in migration
to corn fields now filled with the golden ruffage left from
John thought of the song of the loon and the tapping of
the woodpecker soon to be silenced by cold.

CF18 Hornet. Even as a child John had enjoyed the
multi faith service downtown in his hometown.
Grannies, John’s mom had found it too cold and
gone to drive herself and Carlton back to 24 Sussex
