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!

  2. I love your poem and the beauty of Autumn in your neighborhood! (especially the cat!) lol I remember at your last home how you had tons of leaves to rake each year; do you have a lot to rake at your newest home??

    1. No, we don't have many to rake here. Fortunately, we can enjoy the colors in our neighbor's trees without having to rake much. :-)

  14. Great poem and pics. You've got a lot more color there. Like Joanne, our leaves are mostly turning a little brown and falling down. Hopefully, we'll see some color soon.
