October Scenes

October Scenes

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!
