November always comes........

Listening to the sounds in the woods
I look to the
branches above
Sheathes of white birch flutter in a light breeze
and silently fall away
Off in the distance I see the tops
of pine trees....firs ...spruce
swaying ...pointing to
the wet blanket of clouds
Towering columns of mist dance
along the treeline
like checkmarks on
a blackboard
November rains
We knew it would
It always does
November ........
like the boy who goes to the
dance entering late and leaving early
so that no one knows
He stands quietly in the shadows
and watches the beautiful
women of summer twirl
an laugh
wishing he was more like
july or even august.....
But he is november
only november
and it always comes.....

Yes, it does. November does not know its own beauty and worth. Without November, nature would not rest and so Spring would fail. The November's are worth so much. I hope each of them sees that one day.
