November Magic

Three poems of very different moods all celebrate November and New England.

The Woodlands' Royal Fall


A haiku of a leaf-filled forest pathway, a wonderland of November's beauty.

Winds' enchanted wand-
Magic slipper's golden path...
November woodlands.

Thanksgiving by the Fireside

The sky is a frail blue,
Translucent clouds brush the sun.
There is a cold white that softens the light
And gives the day a November view.

Tree branches are raw and bold
Against the opaque hues,
The ocean now a somber gray.

The harbor town lies hidden,
And there, within the woodland's pines-
Homes with families gathered to prepare
Thanksgiving's feast by the fireside.

Winter's Mirror

On the silver frost of winter's glow
The stars shiver in the night sky.
In the wonder of the first snow,
Flakes of icy starlight fall...
Luminous golden reflections
On the cold earth below.

I write poetry to share the beauty surrounding me in my beloved Maine. My hope simply is- in sharing it, you discover the beauty inside you; and write poetry too...

My dear friend, you capture New England better than anyone else I know. When I read your lovely art, I am transformed to my Nana's and Grandpa's kitchen. Tell Mike, I just love the photo of those homes, they are so and I mean, so NE, in my heart that is.
I so miss y'all and I also miss writing. I wish this computer mess would end for me. UGH!LOL
My Grand is doing fine, he will be here tomorrow. We are able to have him at least once a week here lately, it has been a blast! I hope your Grands are doing fine and you have been enjoying them. Bugg and Sweet Tee are growing and doing fine. I do hope I am able to have this computer mess worked out by the 24th, It will be Bugg's 2nd birthday. Well hon, I could write you three articles of just chat but, I will not hog up your page. I am sure you will be full by 2. As always, it has been a honour to read your beautiful art. It just made me feel cozy all in inside. I hope to get back to you soon. Your friend Denise.:)

Beautiful poems! "I love the lines, (Thanksgiving by the Fireside) "There is a cold white that softens the light
And gives the day a November view." You write about sentimental stuff without being sentimental. The mark of a good poet. No "June moon" poetry here!

I now live in the woodlands of Maine johnnydod, but not far from the village where I was born... close enough to taste the salt of the sea on wind...I am blessed... but part of my heart belongs in England - as I feel in love with your country too- living there as I did in my most wonderful "young mom years":0)
