November

Like bare bones, the silhouettes are now

engraved into the landscape.

There is so much bleak beauty.

There is so much bright sadness.

Now that all the glamour has been shed,

only the core remains.

And this is where you meet,

amongst all the shades of grey.

With your sorrows and your longings

and your questions.

With your endless awe, amazement

and childlike wonder.

You allow the autumn to draw you in.

And in that bold and cold embrace,

you just know.

It is here you are from

and it is here you will always belong.
