Sterling November

Sterling November short poem

Sterling November and I can feel the winds of change
Now in the shadow of the moons’ bright light
Well we may not have it all together but together we
Have it all, somehow that gives me hope
Wagon half empty, wagon half full well it’s all in how
You look at it and this season of giving nothing is taken
For granted, feast or famine it’s all good although this
Year the barn is a lost cause I must say God has been
Benevolent today
I close my eyes and bow my head in prayer arms full
Of firewood in the cold frozen air and that gives me
Faith over fear tonight my heart is aware
In the shadow of the moons’ bright, bright light now we
May not have it all together but together we have it all
Somehow and gives me the hope to cope as I gather
The last little bit of The Autumn Harvest…

This is an ode to the press. I write a lot of these leading up to publications I care about. This one was unique, I sketched on some boxes, used some spray paint and some sharpies. In the space above

November Third, Seattle

November Third, Seattle short poem

The sun won’t appear today Rising elsewhere it kindles flowers In foreign fields; even inspires A crop of melanoma among The fieldhands. But not here. The grey view south is dotted With electric pinpoints and a single Tall cross dim

November nights

November nights short poem

When the night train leaves the terminal, It’s body cold as a corpse, It’s lights alive as chickens in The butcher’s cage, I sit bunched up in my Flea market shawl beside the closed windows. I play that game of
