Zeal of November

My evening sky glints motifs gold In orange vibes turned ruby bold Glowing remnants of shining snow Where pewter winds merrily blow Swirling imprints of amber glaze Bending hues of setting sun rays Prairies sway season’s dreaded hold Wailing in grief, as blossoms fold, For fallen leaves and wintry woe That shudders trees in frosted throe While browning pastures cattle graze Where foothills gleam in twilight haze When fervor yawns in dreary mold And garden sighs of parching cold Pine trees, ebullient, dance in row Enchanting hearts in nature’s show While ogling the stars passions blaze As romance blooms in moonlit gaze On horizon mauve dreams unfold Where blush of morn lovers behold Greeting November's scarlet glow That tawny dawn's sunbeams bestow Glistening face of shortened days Wooing warmth in autumn's malaise November 26, 2020 Placed 1st: Lay November Poetry Contest Sponsor: William Kekaula Eight syllables per line (howmanysyllables.com)

A stunningly beautiful piece, Vijay. Winter is a more pleasant season here in the South, but there is always the promise of spring returning to lift our spirits when it seems cold and bleak outside. You are truly amazing! Love, Carolyn

A cold November "nature's show" presented in a freezing season, rendered warm and made eager to see and feel when weaved by a great poet who imparts his heart and mind in his work of art! A great poetry worthy of being highly rated and honoured! A fave and a win! Dear Vijay, a great pleasure to read your wonderful poetry.. My deepest regards and blessings.
