October, what have you brought to me?
Red velvet leaves drape a row of trees.
A skeleton trapped by spiders
whispers, "Please, please, set me free!"
Pumpkins and gourds keep watch on who's sneaking around.
Old bones struggle to escape the ground.
A calico naps in the noon day sun.
Zinnias flourish, pretending summer isn't done.
A burst of red and gold peeks out from the green.
A ninja is always watching the neighborhood scene.
The colors of Christmas? No, not already!?
But the colors, oh the colors!
The colors leave me heady!
