November Mine



(11/18/10)

While waiting out November
for the harvest of my heart,
I envied how love flickered
in the undeserving dark
and wished upon it’s beauty then,
to pull the night apart.

But then the season found a way
to cut the moon in half for me
and made my piece a paramour
that only I could see.
The silhouette of you
where my November came to be.

With all the cold you touched my soul
in a hundred subtle ways.
I felt my heartbeat must have hinted
what my lips would not betray.
At last, the eve that halved November fell
when we began to sway.

And so a breath of fall wrapped ’round us,
like a tangle to untie,
for how you kissed my cheek with purpose
when I pointed out the sky.
The night was smiling at us
as November made you mine.

Jana Satterlund Claim this poet

It has surely become my escape, my late night ritual, my confession. I feel honored to be a part of this community where so many talented poets come together. I appreciate any sentiment and am elated at the opportunity to comment on so many beautiful pieces! more…
