November Fog

fall-9-2.jpg

November it the pearl-gray month

the changeling between

warm crimson October

and,

cold white December

the month when the leaves fall, in slow drifting whirls,

and the shapes of the trees are revealed

when the earth imperceptibly wakes

and stretches her bare limbs

and

displays her stubborn

unconquerable strength

before she settles uneasily into winter

November is secret and silent
