A November Poem

Below is another November poem, a little more somber this time.

  November Evening

Sky cradles a sliver of  moon.
Saturn in the West, the only star.
Humpbacked mountains crouch.
Trees point leafless limbs above me.
Cold stings my cheeks, chills fingers
searching for warmth inside my coat. 
The white dog trots ahead
and pokes his nose into bushes
left bare by last week's freeze. Snow will fall
before dawn, dress firs, pines and oaks,
hills and houses in winter's wrapping.
I stop, savor the closing moments of dusk,
loath to go within and face the truth.

Will my brother see another autumn's gold?
Or does Eternity wait like the glistening
days of December, beckoning light
so bright he is drawn forever away?
