November



November, half-sister to winter's cold heartache
brings thoughts that are sharp and as thin as the trees.
Sits still as a child who yearns to be noticed,
entreats me to rest 'fore the upcoming freeze.

I'll sit here aware in mysterious quiet,
pondering new years or old seasons' charms
And yearn to be loved when December's indifference
brings me inside to be warmed in your arms.

That damn near turned me on. The Maker, sadly, did not see fit to bless me with a Poetic Inclination.

November on the gulf coast is my favorite time of year..cooler weather though a bit windy. Fishing gets better though the snowbirds keep the piers full. In olden days when I was out west November brought on bird season and a freezer of quail and venison. And of course this is the month for the yearly Turkey..if not for Thanksgiving and lunch meat and hotdawgs turkey farmers would go out of business...

Cowboy Junkies? Never heard of them so I'm not sure if that's a compliment or a dig...

:o)

Feh. Poetry. It just has to get out and stretch its legs sometimes.

Thanks again, all.

Erica, that Award has been on my sidebar forever, girl. It means more than any WeblogAwards crap.

The regard of good people is reward enough.
