951. All was silent as before – all silent save the dripping rain. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Mid-November has come shrouded in its predictable gloom
Which has set the sky to weeping from its heavy clouds of grey.
Somber as that may be autumn’s flowery remains yet bloom
Albeit droop amidst the decomposing ghosts of yesterday.

The garden, it is still and as silent as a tomb except for
The rain that varies from mists to showers to a downpour,
And there are no birds, no butterflies, no bees, no cats astray
Venturing forth from their dry haunts all the livelong day.

And I, I sit in front of the window and watch in a melancholy
Kind of funk, the cause of which I know not except to say
That like a chameleon perhaps I’ve taken on the colors of the day
But not because the rain, the silence, and the peacefulness are folly.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. ~Philippians 4:6-7   ✝

  1. So very nicely put, and describing this evening here. Even had a blink in power that put out the oven, computer and TV. All are reset but there are more storms headed this way. So very much a mid November afternoon here. 🙂

  2. you do, take on that particular “color” of the day—because you are so attuned to the living world, your mood, emotions, feelings are in sync with that of all of Nature—a gift, a curse—you live and breathe just the earth takes her living breath—compatibly complete my friend —hugs to a wet Texas from a too hot for November Georgia

    • Why thank you, Julie. What a lovely thing to say.
      I’m so sorry it’s still too hot there. It’s not all that cold here yet but I’m okay with that as long as it’s not hot. Love to my hot Georgia Peach, TT 🙂 ❤


  3. The color of the day here is the same Natalie. But God has been kind to me, and has given me such a blessing today. I have had a day of energy, filled with smiles, laughter, and the urge to just do everything all at one time. If only there were more hours in the day, and more arms and hands attached to my body so I could accomplish more in this day God has blessed me with. I see only sunshine and blessings. And wonderful friends, like you Natalie. HUGS. A.
