November Invites Extra Introspection

For DVerse Poetics, we are writing about November:  What does it mean to you? What does it remind you of?  I wrote a 9-line poem, like an etheree but with 9 instead of 10 lines, because “novem-” means “nine.” Also linked with FOWC: Anticipate. Thanks to Sanaa for the DVerse prompt and for inspiring the title.

This
Month is
One of great
Anticipa-
Tion; election stress
But multiple birthdays
And don’t forget Thanksgiving.
Two friends will be getting married,
What weight of change! and jubilation

  1. November has a lot going for itself and others. It’s a blend of melancholy and joy. It’s a rollercoaster ride! 💝
