~October~




Bales of hay, dot country fields
as farmers gather the last of season's harvest

October arrives
with snap and vigor
and brisk bite of autumn
on her pumpkin scented breath

comfy sweaters
sneak out of their summer hideaways
and wrap their warm arms
around our chilled shoulders

a blazing festival of reds and yellows
in striking contrast to volatile sapphire skies

as the month draws to a close
witches cackle, stirring their evil brew
mocking sardonic grins of jack-o-lanterns
which light the way for little folks
the costumed parade
of trick or treaters...

tomorrow, it will be November
~

Thanks so much, Noah...
I don't feel sick... but the radiation treatments are dragging on me and making me tired...
but..... although it isn't bothering me right now... the cancer is very real and very frightening and I really need everyone's prayers to get rid of it... and I thank you dearly for them

October is the 10th month of the year, and this poem, on a scale of 1-10, is a 10!

No mistaking it! This is truly a wonderful depiction of this glorious month!

October just happens to also be my favorite month, Lyra.   You spoke well of it.  Halloween is actually one of my sister's birthdays.  If she wasn't such a witch, I'd give her a call more often.   LOL  *hugs*
