As November winds down...

I like November, I really do. I love the coming of winter...the stark barren trees. I love bundling up in my loden green cape during the day, and my Grandmother's quilt at night. I love the smell of cookies in my oven and candles on my tables.

What I regret is that November is winding down...Thanksgiving, family, the last leaves of the season, closing the screen windows for good, wrapping up the garden hose, and putting away my bike.

So, a toast to the ending of November....and a welcome to December!

Out my Window

out my window, rain has declared this her day

out my window, gray goblets of liquid rain pour on my car

out my window, children slush by in multi-colored slickers

out my window, yellow fog lights pulsate in darkness

out my window, barren bones of trees hold court in dampness

out my window......brrrr..pull the drapes and let's make tea
