November’s Opening Night

November calendar with scattered leaves on it

On a red carpet

Tossing leaves of welcome

November swept in

As the barren trees shivered

And the crescent moon vanished

Cloudy Days

Clouds

Promises

Of sunny days

Dissolve as the dark clouds linger.

Each day summer’s warmth is cut short

It seems.

This summer we have not seen many sunny warm days.

The weather has been usually cool and even rainy.

Our fruit and vegetables have been aching for sunshine in order to ripen.

Each day I check the Weather App and smile as it tells me the high will be 80-85 and then as the day progresses my smile fades as the sun stays hidden and the temp doesn’t rise as predicted.

I keep hoping though that one of these days I will see summer arise again!
