New Day in November, for Skywatch


City-light diamond necklace at the throat of the mountains
Twinkles, then winks off
The wind chime hangs very, very still

A shiver-cold desert night is ending
Scarlet fingers from the rising sun
Reach up, into a warming sky

Distant dogs bark up into the orange pink gold light
Coyote gives one last commanding howl, and
The November day is born

*****


For sky photos from all over the world, be sure to visit Skywatch Friday.

Why, thank you, Buck! I was hoping it might turn out to be haiku, but that coyote interfered with my plans. You must check the sly labels.

Hi Clair!
Your long lost blogging friend here :)
It IS getting chilly as of late... I was trying to deny winter was coming, but we're expecting snow this weekend, so I finally got some wood... so nice to have a fire going.
I want to read your spooky tales, but I am afraid I'll have to wait til the daylight hours :)
Happy November!
