November Weather

by Marc Mangel

 

November skies are gray

But not uniform

Not painted onto the heavens

but dance across the sky

 

They swirl in ways that we cannot

predict –

even with the right kinds of models

chaos?

perhaps

beauty?

certainty

 

November winds are different

Cold but not yet frigid

Demanding sensible clothing

And rewarding with a sense of comfort

unlike those winds of December

 

November rain is thoughtful

Serious but not slamming

The start of a quenching season

Leading to darkness

 

But followed by spring
