November morning

Our flooded walking path after one of last year's November storms

November morning

This cold sulky morning
Earth is her true Monday self
the last urge to impress
with sun and warmth
quelled in October.
Now days are at the mercy
of how bitter, irritable
nasty and vile she will get.
No need to tone down tantrums
because tender May or June are about.
In the company of old
October and December
she lets it all hang out.
