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.
