A November Walk

A breeze with a
chilling edge
contrasting a cliffside's 
bright reflection
a passing appearance 
 of warmth of the sun..
the flowing breeze 
cold boulders another
 downward flowing 
from some
 early eruption..

this afternoon walk
surveying my notes
suggestions of descent..
sunlit high cliffs  
wearing shadows of pines..
streaked cloud patterns
joining bare branches
pressing downward
 this merging of lines..

descent of the leaves
all fell in past weeks
now grinding to dust
by cycles and feet..
and then
an encircling band
the sunset
 red horizon all around
without hesitation
ringing the town..

November descends
this once more...
