November nears
darkness ever looming
–yes, I do know it’s still fall, y’all
but the shortening of days
the crisping of mornings making the border collie bounce about the yard,
herding the leaves, and the aroma of burning fireplaces
it all screams
that it is coming

a season of rest
of fallowing
before the explosive growth of spring

the slow slide into winter
