November Sky

Spread the love

November with drooping russet leaves,
where whispers tousle their essence
remind of long-ago rooms.
Sweet is ache evermore
I reach for the sky
insert soft sigh
everything
was once
you.

    This is just perfect, Sanaa! I love the use of long ago rooms as a metaphor and the shape of the poem adds to the sense of something lost or left behind.

    Isn’t it strange how the smallest of things can bring back the largest memory. I, too, like the shape of your poem, I think of it as drifting in thought. 🙂
