November Sounds

November Sounds
What do you hear?
Snoring dogs?
Political ads?
The rain pounding on the roof?
Lips smacking in contentment
After the feast is done?
The sound of the rake 
Over the stones
As falling leaves are bagged?
The thump of the acorns hitting the ground,
The coyote’s lonely call?
Wherever you are
November’s noisy quiet
As the year nears end
Is filled with joy and laughter 
With loving friends.

I hope November will sound a lot calmer than the last of October did for you. What a storm. Thfe Autumn picture accompanying your poem is lovely. Where was it taken.
