November Joy


Grey turbulent sky, sun beam forcing through,
connecting its' light to the earth.
The Earth grasps a hold of it, taking the light
and the energy for all it is worth.


November stillness, calm shrouded with mist.
Gales and storms the very next day
once cloth-ed trees hold skeleton arms
high aloft pointing their way.
Receiving the light, renewing their strength
throughout winters' long hibernation.
Yet a beauty remains pervading the scene
feeding us a sense of elation.

I never looked forward to November days
but this year it is not quite the same.
For each day that dawns gives
new hope to me
Nature showing her Love once again!
