November's Bareness

Writer’s Workshop

November’s bareness, stark and revealing

Nothing to hide.

No bright colors or fragrances to capture the senses

Yet dignity prevails.

Honesty of the landscape, devoid of beauty and charm

Provides truth.

November’s integrity blankets the earth

Its promises are safe.

Fog may obscure our glimpse of the world

Rain will fall all around

Bitter cold days will question our faith

Still, November moves on.

Its easy to see through the unadorned view

How everything actually is

November, our tutor, continues to teach

Of how it is we should live....
