November, Blue Ridge Mountains, 1992

By Eric Robert Nolan

November, Blue Ridge Mountains, 1992

November compelled us to visit the hills
Where ignorant rock and lofty pine
Were witness to our disregard
For strangeness, temptation and time.

But memories are sticky things.
Will any mountain ever let
Me dream again? Can I now
Feel rain without regret?

Haunting. There's something about November in the hills, for sure.
