In November, the trees are standing all sticks and bones. Without their leaves, how lovely they are, spreading their arms like dancers. They know it is time to be still.
And we know that it is one of the best months to travel. It is the month when autumn quietly nears its end painting the canvas of the earth with the most vibrant colors of nature and the month when winter begins to arrive sneakily. And what could be more enchanting than to travel to witness the farewell of autumn and the welcome of winter in different parts of the world.
But before you wander off to these places let me attempt to write an ode to the beautiful month of November:
be like November
the second last chapter of the year-book
that lets go of all that doesn’t bloom
so that there’s more space for
that lets new beginnings arrive quietly
without making much sound
because good things don’t always start with a bang
sometimes you can’t even tell
if something good has already begun in your life
until it’s halfway through
so let’s be like November
letting go of all that doesn’t bloom in our lives
so that new things can bloom
so that we can bloom
ah! so gracefully
