My Vague November

My Vague November

A Poem by HandsomeKenn

The inaudible breezes

push along my memory,

pushing me into what

can only be perceived

as searching idly.


Sifting through this scenery

pulls particular panes of me,

pulling me into what

can only be conceived

by drifting leisurely.


God knows that I've missed

this recent past November

in which I -

I can no longer remember.


Still I sift through 

my shifting scenes

eagerly anticipating

a peculiar familiarity.


For spite or fate

I cannot wait

until I'm back

to where I was


this time

That year.

Author's Note

HandsomeKenn
This is an older poem but quickly revamped it before submitting. As always, any feedback is welcome (save for the vulgar ones of course).

Oh, I tend to hold these older ones with a nostalgic esteem so I always have trouble editing or expanding them. So, what I am say is, I welcome any criticisms because I never want to change anything when I am editing them on my own. It'd help me look at them with a sober, objective mind.

My friend, this was haunting and smooth.there is something here that I just can't put my finger on. I m not sure if it's your writing style , your delivery, the structure or your strategically placed rhyming or perhaps the lovely balance and combination of them all but I found this to be flawless...inspiring even. You set an example of what is possible in writing.

The combination of alliteration and rhyme really help this run smooth. You chose your words successfully as far I'm concerned. I usually don't suggest anything unless I see something that hits me as rough or wrong. I see none of that here.

A great poem to read. :)

Thoughtful and softly, smoothly reading piece. The flow is great, it really eases one into the depths of your thinking. I wouldn't change anything either. Very nice.

The title very well suits the poem.
I liked these lines:
Sifting through this scenery
pulls particular panes of me,
pulling me into what
can only be conceived
by drifting leisurely.
We all have those days when we look back into our past. Memories sometimes tend to become vague.
A nice write. And November is approaching !
I also liked these last two verses....
For spite or fate
I cannot wait
until I'm back
to where I was

this time
That year.

These sums up this poem beautifully !! Keep writing.
