Writers' Weir: Seasonal Anticipation

November slides into darkness,

each day less light than the one before.

Plummeting past Thanksgiving,

Black Friday and Cyber Monday,

we look forward to December’s bottom

and the long climb back into the light.

 Richard Stokes, a Juneau resident since 1971, writes about nature, which he loves, and aging, which he is doing.
