November Has A Message

OCTOBER NUDGES NOVEMBER

IN A GENTLE WAY

WAKE UP NOVEMBER! FALL IS HERE!

YOU ARE ON DISPLAY!

THE BEAVER MOON IS ON THE WANE

IT WILL SOON BE OUT OF SIGHT

SEQUESTERED IN THE QUIET

OF NOVEMBER’S STAR-FILLED NIGHT

AN ARTIST, SHE SCATTERS COLORS

FINGER PAINTING ALL AROUND OUR BAYS

IN EMERALD GREEN AND AMBERS

THROUGH A CRISPY MORNING SPRAY

AWAKENED BY NATURE’S CARESS

AQUATIC LIFE COME OUT TO PLAY

ACROSS OUR SHOALS AND WETLANDS

LOOKING FORWARD TO THE DAY

NOVEMBER SPEAKS TO THE MARINER

THROUGH A PUMPKIN-COLORED CAPE

THE BAYMAN AND THE FISHERMAN

NETTED IN HER SEASCAPE

“SEA LIFE NEEDS THE SEAMAN

AS STEWARDS OF THE SHORE

WATCH OVER MY GENTLE DOLPHINS

TAKE CARE OF MY FRAGILE PORTS

“AS FALL MOVES ON TO WINTER

SADLY, I CANNOT STAY

RIP-TIDES MAY COME UPON US

SWEPT IN BY STRONGER WAVES

“LOOK AFTER THESE COASTAL WATERS

MY AQUATIC LIFE-SUPPORT

MY NIGHTS ARE GROWING LONGER

AS MY DAYS ARE GROWING SHORT.”
