November

Branches wave naked in the autumn wind, Leaves being tossed carelessly through the night. Dark rain clouds are dominating our sky And my eyes ask where the beauty has gone. Daybreak shows sleepily its weary head Just to return to bed, early again. Cold and wet invading our daily walks And my eyes search for signs of a blue sky. Alas, the first of many snowflakes fall Bringing the beginning of brighter days. Grey disappears under a white blanket And my eyes applaud November’s beauty. The white snow has brought pureness in its wake And nights are brighter from shimmering snow. We light a fire, and it brings us such warmth And my eyes feel the sun shine once again. 10.08.2014 Poet Destroyer A's Contest Impress Me with a Poem

I really enjoyed your heartwarming poem, Brenda, especially that last line. The heat from the fire is the closest thing to sunshine that we experience during the winter months.... A lovely write! Good luck in Linda's contest!
