November Is Having A Hot Flash

Something to look forward to North of the Border

 

It’s days like this

you can almost imagine

the New England version

of Mother Nature having a heart

 

The sun, almost low enough

to look you straight in the eye

a straggling army of leaves

in khaki, holding on to what’s left

of the apple tree, for one last parade,

under a blue sky,

and tempered breeze,

a whisper of the memory of warmth.

 

November is having a hot flash.
