November chill...


November brings our first good dose
Of wintry weather, draws us close
around our hearthfire set ablaze.
We wander unleafed ridges in the haze
from chimneys like our own laid stone,
not quite sorry for the summer gone,
yet feeling a bit older in the chill,
grateful for the friends abiding still.


  1. Good morning Henry. Amazing how you hit so close to how I am actually feeling at this time of year. (-:

  2. I can feel the crisp air on my neck and face, smell the wood smoke and musky scent of decaying leaves. This piece evokes those old sensations that bring comfort and rest to a crowded mind.
