A Warm, November Day


The gift of a warm, November day.
Dark shadows upon the 
     luminescent waters, at bay. 
Trees, wrapped in colors, 
               not ready to let go.
Like a worn-in sweatshirt, 
    the gray, 
          hovering clouds 
embrace my soul.  

The gift of a warm, November day.  
Scattered pictures,
     sprinkled in dust
                  - leading the way.
Rusty sounds beneath my tired,
          yet humbled feet.
Earth's awakening -
                    once again,
                          I feel complete.

  1. That's nice, Leslie. Not only do you have a way with words, but you have always had a way with white space. It adds to what you do. Kudos!
