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






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
