november sky


November sky

Barren trees with branches reaching
rendered steel by frosty mornings
mourning the lush and luminous summer
now only memory can find

Before the springtime resurrection
before the sun’s glad warmth reviving
before the sap returns to strengthen
darkness turns us inward

Cherish the flame that thrives in shadow
the bitter wind that drives us closer
hold fast, for though the storm clouds threaten,
the sun still rules the sky
