October Occasions A forenoon mist increased toward absence, whilst every part of listless shadows clears, vibrant October stage thousands of cheers, as columns of trees in theme bring balance. Advents of crimson hints and orange glaze, dew exhaled whispers, upon ousted leaves, the caress of a late summer breeze heaves, pumpkin skies carve a sun unending praise. Harvested fields expose some ready earth, since reticence that lingers stretch midday, a blessed number of eyes vision lord's day, gifted gaze of Heaven's garden liked mirth. Fall echo's as the sketched season of four, captured forest brighten in darken glades, as fell leaves still draw, lucid color shades, an Indian drummed a chant delayed score. Decorative bordered, flawless wrapped all, enhancing picturesque arts fine postcards, messenger doves fluffy tone girth regards, redemption threshold benign hearts a Fall. 2020 September 30 *1st Place* COMPLETELY YOUR CHOICE (27)any form any theme ~~Brian Strand: Judged 2020 October 16 *4th Place* October Poetry ~~Regina McIntosh: Judged 2020 October 08
