       Theres something strange about November...

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    November kills,
    with a sweetness and a softness
    I cannot embrace.
    There is something
    in the fragrance of November
    that follows me in the streets,
    dwells like a presence in my rooms,
    and waves,
    through a suave movement of the curtains.
    November lives,
    and scatters around heartbeats
    I cannot silence.
    My November nights have a pulse
    but lack a breath,
    as I sense the wind is incomplete.
    The atmosphere trembles at my sight
    and I hear November sing.
    Reveals his voice, releases his words
    with a sweetness and i softness
    I cannot embrace.

      Mmm...my mind cannot completely get a grip on every idea presented...which is probably why I enjoyed it so much... I mean... I love the idea of being somewhat lost, in a sense, and...hard to describe but I feel like you did a completely wonderful and awesome job doing it. I like it so much I'm adding it to my favorites. Now I'm feeling slightly jealous that I didn't write it....Oh well. PEaCe!

      i usually leave a comment first and the fave a piece, but apparently i was in a rush when i read this originally and have since forgotten to come back. =]

    this both starts strong and ends strong; i like how even though the middle meat of the piece was bookended by the same thoughts, they evolved and metamorphed in their meaning and tonality. there's a innocent wonder here that reminds me of a light-eyed Orlando Bloom in the lord of the rings movies, just the way he looked at things as if he was seeing what no one else could see.

    a highly original and evolved piece - it felt very polished and absolutely certain in the word choice/placement and the images created by them. have you had this published yet? it should be, it's amazing.

    with a sweetness and i softness
    - perhaps you meant "a" softness?

    thanks so much for sharing this with the rest of us and sorry i wasn't prompt with my return. =]

      I'm not sure what it is about the ordering of your words but it seems that. almost without a conscious effort I manage to wind myself up when I'm reading them.
    Maybe it's the actual words used and the almost haphazard way they seem to have been chosen - barely fitting in with the more pedestrian ones around them.
    I like this too.
    I think it would make for a good exercise for everybody to write about the month they dislike the most - for me it would be March I suppose.
    The last three lines sum this up quite succinctly and that inability to go beyond nodding terms is quite telling.
    Nice one.

      Personally, November is my favorite month. It's right before Christmas with the leaves changed and before the real hard winter hits us. There really is something about November for me. Not only my birthday by the way. LoL Which is the 15th of Nov. ;) But yeah back to the write, I enjoyed your view on it. This is my favorite part,
    "My November nights have a pulse
    but lack a breath,
    as I sense the wind is incomplete."
    I really enjoyed this write. I'm making it a favorite because I love November so much and I like the way you interpert November. :)

      I like how it is, I like this poem, it is very original and yes I know how you feel about november...it was always a strange..yet soothing month. My only critique is this really wasn't a poem so much as a very good piece of imagery.

      this was one of your best writes so far. this is the worst month in the year for me and never seems to have a a resting moment. It always follows you around like someone is there but no life to be found. i have never had a good november for about as far back as i can remember i have always lost a family member or friend and have the worst charma. last year was going good then my girl friends dad died then she moved away then left me...so yeah.

    I enjoyes this poem thank you again.
