Again, November

night sky 8-28-09

Again, it’s November –
When the leaves that were
Deciding when to fall
Have made their decision
And parted ways with
The branches they held
Onto since Spring.

I used to think November
Was sad – the ending of
Summer’s expectations,
But now, I see it as the
Beginning of Spring’s
Rebirth. Come the snow,
The winds and blustery
Days of hands in pockets –

It’s not November’s fault.
November releases the clouds
That brood on late autumn days
That sweep the crust of the old
Year to make way for every
Future Spring.

These are scary times. Prepare yourself to take a stand for what is right. God damn it, just be kind!
