After so many spring-like days, the look of mid-November in the sky yesterday was a surprise. It snowed all day long but melted instantly on the spring warmed soil. The snowflakes were mega-sized and looked like confetti falling from the grey clouds above.

  1. I never knew how difficult this would be. But here you go:

    You remind me that my year can still have a glorious end, but I long for the months gone by. Your chill shivers my spine, and you chide with the soft peaceful snowflakes. With October’s last sighs of Fall, and ahead to reunions in December. I can’t but love you?

    That’s exactly 50 words after writing, editing, re-writing, and re-editing. But it was a fun exercise!

  2. In the past, November was one of the few months more tolerated than enjoyed. I used to only see the death and loss of colorful beauty part of it Aging brought new vision. November displays its own stark beauty: trees become extremely simple in design and color even while remaining enormous storehouses of life . Plants and animals go about preparing for the time to come, the future. Now November is favored.
