Short November Poems

Blessed be the Lord,

who daily loadeth us with benefits . . .

Psalm 68: 19a (KJV)

N  ovember
O  pens to blue skies
V  ery cold weather soon to
E  ndure, yet many
M  oments of
B  eauty to
E  xperience
R  enewal each day

* * *

November garden
fallen leaves   so much has died
a single rose blooms

*

years go by
leaves fall
time of rest
then rebirth
God’s time
not mine

*

small road . . . an old tree in a well-worn field

*

November Wisconsin countryside
Bare trees elegant against the sky
Colors in the landscape muted now.
October’s glory is gone
And love grows eternally.

* * *

sitting at my blog
grateful for friends
first snowflakes
gently fall
and rest on the roof

* * *

late November
sun fills a glass
for a time

* * *

R  est
E  ncourage
S  ing
T  rust God

* * *

reading old letters
reflections of Christmas lights
on the water

*

M  ay
E  veryone who can
R  emember and
C  onsider
Y  our children in need

These are poems from my blogs.

A few also appeared in print journals.

I wrote “November garden” years and years ago.  It was published in Pegasus, SMILE, and The Discerning Poet.

 “November Wisconsin countryside” was published in SMILE (Fall/Winter, 2008 – 2009).  This is my Thanksgiving poem.

“late November” was just published in TIME OF SINGING (Fall 2013).
