November

by estory

November's light fades from yellow to brown to grey
Yet the eternal sky above still remains,
Clear, even in the early coming night,
Shining and brilliant with glorious stars
Pointing out the paths between the naked trees
Sleeping in the cold of the new fallen snow.

The new fallen snow,
White, otherworldly, deep in its purity,
Buries and transforms these half remembered fields
Dreamt in a springtime of flowers,
Here where the leaves and snow sparkle in the starlight,

The scattered memories of days
In the faint, faded, fallen leaves,
The pieces of skies.

Pieces of dreams.



This free verse poem, full of surreal images of life and death bleeding through each other, and laced with echoing patterns of repeating sounds, speaks of the spirit of life that transcends time and place. estory
